Nope just working on getting Elise in a big bed so we can get Alex out of the mini crib into a full size crib and need to get her to sleep unswaddled because she rolled the other night but she refuses not sure what to do there but we have a video monitor so I can keep a close eye on her

What time is bedtime? around 8:45

What time are you up for the day with them? Well, I go to work so Marsi wakes up and has some mommy time before work around 6:45-7

How many night wakings on average? 1

How do they fall asleep? Very, very easily! Our bedtime routine is down pat. Bath, lotion and massage, feeding, snuggles and book, bed!

How many naps a day? Um...I think 3-4. Most of the time 4

Where are they sleeping now? In her pack and play in our room. I love her right there personally. Makes it really easy for the night feed.

Anything else important? Since she is so mobile we have to put her pack and play out of the bassinet position. I meant to do it today but completely forgot until I was putting her in bed.

What time is bedtime?he's usually asleep by 8:30 on average

What time are you up for the day with them? he's an early riser, sometimes at 5:30, mostly 6 and if i'm lucky sometimes at 7 (which is rare)

How many night wakings on average? about twice a night

How do they fall asleep? sometimes in my arms, but lately i've been laying him in his bed and he's been falling asleep on his own...hoping to get rid of the swing soon

How many naps a day? if i'm lucky twice...he's getting better at napping

Where are they sleeping now? still his swing, but he's starting to sleep in his bed more during the day, always his bed at night

Anything else important? I just wish he'd sleep through the night already!!! he stopped at 4 months and he's almost 7 months old...i've had enough lol

Wow...this room has some good sleepers! Mine is NOT! Lol.

What time is bedtime? 8:15, almost to the minute.

What time are you up for the day with them? 6:45, again, very regular

How many night wakings on average? Usually 4 in that time frame. If I am lucky, only three.

How do they fall asleep? I sway while singing him three songs (same three I sing Liam) and then put him in his crib. He goes right to sleep. I thought it would help him sleep better to not nurse down. But it doesn't seem to matter.

How many naps a day? Three. About 30 minutes in the morning, 1.5 hours in the early afternoon, and 30 minutes around 5pm.

Where are they sleeping now? His crib for naps and laying down for the night...but after the second or third waking of the night, I bring him in bed with me. But he is so restless, I don't get good sleep when he is in bed with me, even though I don't have to get up to nurse.

Anything else important? Nah, just waiting, impatiently, for a stretch longer than four hours. Kid loves to hang with me at night!

What time are you up for the day with them? Between 7-8 am!

How many night wakings on average? Just one. Between 430-6 a. Last night he slept 715p-6a! Thanks Joey!

How do they fall asleep? After bath and pjs, he gets a book and bottle in the glider then I put him in his crib with paci and his fisher price glowing seahorse which he plays with til he falls asleep

How many naps a day? 3 naps. 1-2 hours at 930a, 12p, and 30-45 min at 530p

Where are they sleeping now? His crib. He loves it

Anything else important? He is finally sleeping all night! He went through a stretch of waking at 1130p, 2a, 430a then 6. And now he's sleeping around 10hours the past week!

Thank you for starting this thread, now I have an excuse to whine. Maggie is still up every 2-3 hours. Her ped said to stop feeding her at night--she is huge, so growth is definitely not an issue, and he said if she keeps eating at night, she'll keep waking at night, so try our best not to feed her at night and hopefully she'll start sleeping (and eating more in the day). We have had 4 nights since then, and it's been hit or miss on whether we can soothe her back to sleep without feeding her. Right now she's going down at about 8:30, and waking again every 2-3 hours after that until 6:30-ish when she's awake for good. It's brutal and I am exhausted.

I just finished three weeks of hell with Luigi! In total he was only sleeping about four hours a night! Sometimes he would let us rock him, pat him etc back to sleep and other times we had to feed him. It was a nightmare so I understand what you are going through. He pretty much snapped out of it with minimal help from us. I hope the same happens for you. I feel like if babies can get themselves into these schedules from hell then they can get into better routines just as easily. Right? Or is that just wishful thinking?

What time is bedtime? Early! Between 6 and 7. Tonight he was fast asleep by 6:20.

What time are you up for the day with them? Anywhere between 6:30 and 8.

How many night wakings on average? A bunch. But he sleeps for 13 hours sometimes, so I can't really complain. But usually 3 or 4, I think. He's in our room still so the night wakings aren't that much of a nuisance for me. I usually feed him and he goes right back to sleep. Last night was tough, every hour from about 2 to 7.

How do they fall asleep? After our bedtime routines (dinner, take a walk with the dogs, take a bath, lotion/massage, get into jammies, I nurse him until he's almost asleep, then put him in his crib. He rolls onto his tummy and usually falls asleep in a minute or two, sometimes he fusses for a while.

How many naps a day? Two or three. But he only naps if he's being held or in the ergo or in the car, driving. Argh!

Where are they sleeping now? In a crib, in our bedroom. Except for naps, he hates his crib for naps and won't sleep longer than 10 minutes in it during the day.

Anything else important? We just got him out of the swaddle at 6 1/2 months! It was a few nights of some serious sleep deprivation, waking every twenty minutes and lots of crying, but we made it!

Read the threads in the August 2011 room...it will make you feel more normal. Kieran is right there with you. I wanted to see ow everyone was doing...but I knew kieran was not one of the better sleepers in here. I sorta didn't want to hear that people had babies sleeping right through! Lol. I have done everything I can think of to help him sleep thru...but he just wont. He still wakes to eat and won't be soothed back down by anything else. I have resigned myself to never sleeping a full night again! Hugs to you, I know what it is like. Kieran has never slept more than five hours at a stretch...EVER!

You never know it can happen all ofasudden we kicked Alex out of our room and she was doing a bit better then out of no where the night before last she slept from 7:30 to 4:30 and last night woke for the First time at 10ish to eat but then went back down untill after 5am and just the night before she slept through I think she woke at least 5 time
and I wouldn't cut out feeding at night all at once mabey try one at a time starting with the first one cutting one out every week or two untill she is doing better
our big problem is she is so inconsitant you never know when how long she will nap or how many times she wake up at night that's why my answers are never consistant. Has your nanny got her on a good day shedual yet
