I did the same as Christa as far as reading Babywise and used a Sleep coach. Everything they said I tried (including 5/10/15 Cry it out method) At that age as long as they are fed, dry, and not sick it is important to teach them independence, self soothing, and how to go to sleep from being awake. It really helped our son get a great nights sleep after only a few days, and now he’s over 2 and sleeps for 12 hours a night and LOVES sleepy time. It’s important to do what you’re comfortable with but I can say that using that method hasn’t given my kid abandonment issues and he has a very healthy sleep routine which makes for a happy boy!
