Just some info - baby sleeping through

So my little boy is 5 months now, and used to sleep through, until about 2 months ago, started waking at night, and it started getting out of hand. So, the last 2 nights I put him in his crib while awake but drowsy. First night, he cried and moaned for about 10 minutes then fell asleep. Woke up only from 4 in the morning. Last night, same thing, but he almost fell asleep immediately, and was only starting to wake up this morning when we were already up and getting ready for work. So one of 3 things happened. 1. The Cry-it-out method worked, 2. the rooibos tea i add to his last bottle at night, makes him fuller or calmer or something, 3. the strong smell of lavender from adding lavender oil to my own bath water, that was still hanging in the air, made him sleep better. Oh well, something worked, and I''m not complaining. Lets hope it stays this least for a while so I can catch up on some sleep.

Glad it worked! sometimes one never ever finds out, and then the little rascal starts the waking again, and whatever you try does not work ever again. Boys...
