Do you guys do this with your LO's? I never have, because it just doesn't feel right for our family. However, I recently had a friend on FB say she was sleep training her daughter, and several of the commenters acted like they thought it was wrong NOT to sleep train, bad for the marriage, bad for baby, etc. Just curious how you all are approaching things.

We never have. Like you said, it never felt right for our family. I feel like (and DH agrees) that the time we have with our babies is fleeting...I'm okay giving up some time with DH or some of my sleep when they need me at night.

What do you mean by sleep training?

I wanted to teach Elijah to sleep in his crib in our room, but that's not working out (he climbed over and I had to grab him before he fell). I am going to covert it to the toddler bed, but we can't use it that way until 15 months, so I'll have to get a playpen or continue co-sleeping until then. We will not be doing any CIO. I'll stay with him and pat his back until he falls asleep.

Jinnah, why not until 15 months? I get that the packaging says that, but do you know what the reason for that is? It doesn't make sense that at 15 months a kid will magically be ready for something that they aren't ready for at 14 months, ya know?

That's EXACTLY what I was wondering. Did they just pick an age or is there a reason for that age?

Madalyn in general is a really good sleeper *knock* on wood! We just let her play, stay up, until she wants to nurse and she usually starts rubbing her eyes and I lay her down and 90% she falls asleep in her crib on her own and just wakes once at night to nurse.

Coleson goes to bed after I nurse him at approx 730-8. First wake up is STARTING to be around 3, then DH gets him and puts him in bed with us. Side nurse, and sleeps good till 7-730.

I dont really know about the sleep training. But I would say if you like what your doing, keep it up. Just like KHM said, whatever our babies need at night is worth it, even giving up sleep or time with DH for a very short period of time. They will be grown up before we know it, and we will LONG for these nights. (That makes me sad.)

I guess it depends. I don't sleep train but it depends on what people call sleep training. With dd1, we just moved her to her room at 4 month ish and gave her a big bottle of warm breastmilk and she slept until morning. My Luyando didn't officially totally move until around 10 months and that still included several trips at night to her room. Knock on wood, she just recently started sleeping all night consistently. If moving them to their room and doing things to aid sleep (warm milk, bath at night, etc.) is sleep training, then I'll say I do that. But at the end of the day, it didn't work for dd2 like it did for dd1 and I was fine with it. I attended to her when she woke up at night and she is pretty good about falling back to sleep. Really, each to her own but I want just two kids and spending 2-4 years of my life sleep-deprived is not the end of the world. But for those who do more aggressive sleep training, kudos to them; just not for me/us.

I guess we sleep train? I don't put her in bed with us unless I can tell she's sick. She'd much prefer to be in her own bed. I do go to her within 5 minutes of her crying. I give her a chance to settle herself, but then I will go & rock her & then lay her back down drowsy. She is very good at self-soothing.

We will never sleep train. She's up tons all night, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I don't really mind holding her back to sleep. <3

So, I wasn't exactly sure what my friend meant by sleep training until our Christmas party last night. It bothers her that her LO is not self-soothing and falling asleep on her own. They are doing CIO, and she also sounds like she is night weaning so that baby will sleep through the night. The baby is a few months younger than Jamison, and WAS sleeping through the night until the last month or so, then reverted to what the mom considers some "bad" sleep habits. She is a great mom, and I know they go to her to soothe her every few minutes, but we just are different. She can't sleep with baby in the bed, I sleep great with mine snuggled in next to me. To each their own!

Jett started STTN a little over 12m He does still wake up sometimes, but he has been a pretty good sleeper lately, thank goodness! So anyway, no on the sleep training, I'm not sure that we would have anyway, I don't feel right about it.

I am assuming sleep training is when you train them to sleep during the night? If so them I sleep train. I don't allow my kids to sleep in the bed with me unless I am breastfeeding and its in the middle of the night and after they finish I put them back in their cribs to sleep. I have heard people say kids are 4,5-6 years old and still sleep with mommy and daddy. I didn't want that.
