I KNOW I'm going to jinx myself..but for 2 weeks now Lo has been sleeping through the night in her own bed 90% of the time We don't know how it started really. Sometimes we have to put her in and let her cry for about a min because she's too tired to fall asleep on us/wants to keep playing in the living room, but mostly she goes to bed without a fight. She sleeps 7-12 hours sometimes!!! It has been the most rejuvenating thing ever; however, when she doesn't sttn, it's horrible and I get more exhausted than before. Anyone else doing the sleeping through the night dance?!!? For those who aren't...we went from up every 2 hours on the dot to sttn!!

Logan usually sleeps through the night as well, although he has been teething and that has interrupted the routine a little bit. When he's on his good days he goes down about 8:30pm and usually wakes up around 7am. He does stir in the night, typically when he has rolled onto his tummy in his sleep and then wants to be on his back again but can't figure out how to get there - he evidently forgot how to roll from tummy to back when he started crawling? Now he will just sit up in his crib and cry until we lay him back down with his bink and blankie lol

Logan is still in bed with us and he's been restless recently. The doctor told us at this age they might start waking up from dreams. Some nights it's lights out all the way through, others I swear he's on the boob every hour. Or wants to sleep sprawled on top of me. He really likes sleep once he's there though.

Only way my first son would sleep right up until age 3 was right on my chest, and he was a big boy! lol

Leah, Phe was doing that! So annoying! lol. She did that and tossed and turned and we thought it was teething..but it kept going on for 2 weeks so we just started putting her in her crib.

She falls asleep in the weirdest, most uncomfortable looking positions, but only DH moves her lol. I do not move a sleeping baby, but we have 2 standard pillows on the floor of her pnp so it's more comfy.

A goes down in his own bed every night, but after a few hours he wakes up and cries and Aaron usually moves him into bed with us at that point. Sometimes he will just sleep, and sometimes I can only console him by nursing. My doctor wants me to try a version of CIO with him and get him sleeping through the night in his own bed, and without eating. IDK though; i'd love it if he slept all night, but getting through the first few nights of CIO might be too much, and if I don't do it right (if I give in), it will just make things worse for him. :/

Our ped wanted us to do that too and we tried..and I caved. We really don't do CIO like normal. She cries maybe a minute and passes out - but it only works when she's actually tired and just fighting sleep. If she's not she'll cry and cry and I won't let her just sit there crying. I can't stand it. I feel like I'm betraying her when I hear Mooooma. I never thought she'd go longer than 2 hours without feeding but it just happened one night and now she can.

I don't really know what Brady would do if I tried to let him Sttn. Typically I put him to bed between 7-9pm (tonight at 6:30 bc he was getting on my nerves so bad. Now mommy is drinking hard lemonade at 7) & then I dream feed him before I go to bed. I'm a night owl so usually it's around midnight or 1. Then he gets up between 6:30-7am, I feed him & he's up for like a 1/2 an hour & we'll go back to sleep until like 8:30. Today we went back until 9:30! I don't know if he'd sleep straight through if I didn't do the dream feed. In theory, at this age he shouldn't NEED to get up to eat, but Brady boy does what he wants!

H goes down at 7 pm each night. I dream feed him at 10 pm before I go to bed and then go to sleep. If he cries before 2 am I usually wait to see if he's really crying or just fussing between sleep cycles, normally though he sleeps until about 2:30, I feed him then he sleeps until about 6 am. If he cries for more than 5 minutes or stands for a minute or more without lying back down (i.e. he's trying to get back to sleep) then I go feed him. He's not on solids yet (his choice, not mine) so I think he still needs night feeds.

I am so jealous of you girls with babies who sleep through the night. Tessa only wakes up once to nurse at night but I would be so happy to sleep though the night. I guess she doesn't have to get that 5:30 feeding but she is such a good baby and it pretty much our only alone time without an insane 3 year old boy running around.

Heck no, William does not sleep through the night. He is up to nurse 2-4 times.
As his first bday approaches I plan to try to night wean. I'll probably send DH in when he wakes, which the baby hates.

That's the only reason I think she started getting better. Dh puts her down and picks her up.

Oh BTW. I jinxed myself, but it's only like once now so that's better than before!
