That’s what we’re doing to poor little Alexander. He’s now in his own
room and that makes it a lot harder to get up in the middle of the
night to see to him if he wakes up. So we’re trying to teach him to go
to sleep on his own in the cot in his bedroom instead of being nursed
to sleep on our bed. It is definitely the right thing to do, but like
so many right things it is very difficult. You just want to charge in
and pick him up when he cries. However the drill is to let him be for a
few minutes and then just to pop in and speak to him. No cuddles or
picking up otherwise he’ll think the crying is being rewarded. Very
tough on the heart.
