Sleep training days 3-6

She's sleeping through the night!! Yahoo! I've realized that one key is trying to keep her schedule consistent. She doesn't necessarily nap at the exact same time every day, but she's pretty good at waking up at the same time each day, so that helps!

To summarize, B.G. basically cried 20-30 minutes the last few nights.

On Friday night I brought her to my bed about midnight, but she didn't nurse, and she didn't wake up again to nurse until 6:30! That was pretty awesome!

Last night She cried for less than 20 minutes when I put her down at 9:30 pm. I closed our bedroom door when I went to bed and I briefly woke sometime in the middle of the night when I heard her cry, but I ignored it and went back to sleep. She must not have cried very long. I woke up at 7 AM and she was still in her own bed.

I can't believe it. This little gal, who I thought would be sleeping in my bed until she went to college, is starting to sleep in her own bed. She still isn't thrilled with her bed, but we're getting there! This is great! Now I can start the weaning process!



Oh, and I must mention that last night she decided she wants to use walking as her primary mode of transportation! I also took care of an itchy rash she had a few days ago, and since treating that, life has been much easier!

Yay! I'm so glad that she's sleeping better and that you are finally able to get some sleep after a year!

It's funny, I remember talking to someone before Isaac was born and saying, "I would do things differently with another baby now that I have had one." And yet, now that I have number two, I still feel almost as clueless sometimes--in a way I have more confidence about how to be a mother, but as far as what works and which sleep/nap schedules and techniques to apply, I still don't know what is best for Isaac yet. But I am glad this is showing progress for you. We'll have to get together sometime again; I need advice on potty-training!
