Started doing controlled crying with ds last night. So far so good, my question is, I’ve put him upstairs for a nap (this has never happened), he’s not crying, he’s just lying in his cot half way between awake and asleep. If I go in he’ll wake up and start crying once I walk out (this happened last night when he woke briefly) so since he’s not crying do I go in every 5/7/10 etc like I would if he’s crying or since he’s not crying do I just leave him be?

Yes absolutely just leave him to settle to sleep. He is not crying/upset right? How old is he?

Have you got a video monitor?

My DC is 14 months, we don't do controlled crying but she has stopped falling asleep with her bedtime feed so do lay her down and 9/10 she will put herself to sleep but I watch her on the monitor and if she gets upset I go back in and resettle her.

Just leave him!
If not upset, he's likely to fall asleep by himself. If he can't, then he'll show you he needs you and will tell you by crying!

He’s 15 months, yes I have a video monitor which I’m keeping an eye on.
He’s asleep now, but he was just laid there. He wasn’t crying/fussing etc.
Wasn’t sure if I should have gone in but left him and he’s asleep 👍
Thanks everyone smile
