I posted this on fb, but I know some people (*cough cough* Maggie) aren't on fb.

I recently read "Secrets of the Baby Whisperer" by Tracy Hogg, and aside from the bad bf advice, I found the book extremely helpful! Caleb and I now have a good routine going, and he's started sleeping through the night (9-5)! He's been napping better and eating better, too. He's been a lot less fussy which has made everyone in the house happy. I'd highly recommend it. It was easy to understand and implement. Granted, Caleb's always been a fairly "good" baby, so I'm sure her methods are easier to implement with him than a more difficult baby.

Does anybody else have a book recommendation? Any specific techniques you've found helpful?

Oh come ON Lucy...you tell us that your kid is sleeping through the night, but you're not sharing your secrets for the same?

Is it because I'm not on FB?

Yes. Now get on facebook!

It wasn't difficult. She lists 6 causes of sleep problems and how to figure out which one(s) your baby is experiencing. Caleb wasn't sleeping well at night because he was waking up hungry. So I just started feeding him more during the day and voila, he STTN. I didn't feed him more often, I just encouraged him to stay at the breast longer. I've always had a hard time figuring out when he's done, but now instead of assuming he's done when he comes off the second side, I just keep putting him back on until he refuses to eat any more. It has also caused him to spread out his feedings more, which means I haven't felt as much of a milking machine

All babies (and adults too) wake up during the night, we just usually fall right back asleep. Caleb makes all sorts of noises when he sleeps- grunting, sighing, even some screeching. One of the reasons I don't think co-sleeping would work in this house, lol.

I used to think every fussy noise in the middle of the night meant he was hungry, but now I've discovered that he's typically saying "WHERE'S MY THUMB!?!?!?!" and once he finds it he drifts right back into dreamland

Very interesting info, thanks for sharing!!!
Willa slept 7 hours last night, and it was HEAVENLY. Marlowe never did that until I made her at 6 months old. I just love how different kids can be.
