My son still doesn't sleep

I must be the very worst mother ever as my son still cannot sleep. He wakes at least three times a week during the night while we are asleep and nearly every night right as we are going to bed. It is so exhausting, mostly for hubby who stays at home (because he rules). I wish so much that we would have been able to gird up and let him cry it out sometimes, but alas, we didn't and 17 months later, still no consistent sleep. Pray for us!

How long do you let him cry before you go into his room?

We wait a few minutes to see if it is going to subside, sometimes it does, others, it is a pause and then...NOPE EVERYONE UP! Advise??

My son is 17 months and we found that it's just best not to go in. The longest he's cried is 10 minutes. Now it's usually around 1 or 2 and back to sleep he goes.

I assume he is no worse for the wear? Ours can get himself so worked up, I am fearful he will escalate. But, I suppose we have to try something.

On a brighter note, he slept all night last night...amen!
