the books have differing opinions on the whole sleeping through the night thing. At 6.5 months, some of them suggest Autumn should be sleeping through the night. It's too bad she can't read then, I guess. Or even understand. Because we could show her the place in the book where it says she should be sleeping through the night and go, see?
Anyway, we're soon going to experiment with the whole letting her cry it out. In theory, it sounds good. You let her cry, she eventually goes back to sleep (or cries herself to sleep) and she stops waking up. The thing is, her cries break our hearts. Her little head, her red sobbing eyes. Not easy. The instinct is to make everything better. But the time is coming to give it a dervish. So we will. We'll let you know how it goes.
