Thanks! Did you still give her a pacifier during the day, or was it completely gone?

Neither am I! :-D The gist is you define specific time intervals that you allow your baby to cry before you step in and comfort the child. Each interval increases until the last interval, and then it just repeats. For example: Allow your baby to cry for 3mins then soothe, followed by 5 mins, then repeat 10 min intervals. Each sleep cycle resets the clock to 3mins. eventually the child is supposed to be able to self soothe and sleep better.

Thank you for your comment. We have talked about implementing the Ferber Method to help her with her sleeping. From what we've read, Dr. Ferber recommends waiting till the baby is at least 4mo and suggests starting around 6mo. What are your thoughts on the Ferber Method? He seems to think that 4mo babies are able to self soothe and consistantly sleep through the night

So what did you do to remove the pacifier? Did you just do it cold turkey? We were trying to wean her during the day and then get rid of it all together, but she started yelling every time we'd put her in the crib, so we caved and we've gone back to giving it to her every 30ish mins..
