I had planned on posting this today, then saw Amy's post, so it's probably good timing. Who has an LO still waking up? If not, what tricks do you have for keeping them down at night?

Sam mostly sleeps through the night. He occasionally wakes around 5 hungry. A warm bottle and he goes right back to sleep. Our tricks are to put several pacifiers in his crib and a bottle of water. We watch him on the video monitor and we see him finding pacifiers and taking sips of water and going back to sleep. Also when he cries early on around 11pm, he usually just does for a few minutes and puts himself back to sleep. These things have helped us!

Michael normally sleeps through the night too. Last night he woke up SCREAMING - I know his teeth are working their way in - I see one. We just rock him when he wakes up - and normally he is back to sleep in 10 min or so. Once in a while he will fight ya - but not often at all.

No tricks or tips really... he's been a pretty good sleeper for the most part.

Guess where we still are - waking up on average 5 times a night. He wants to nurse so I let him. Recently he has had a few nights of only waking up twice. Hoping to see more of those in our future.

Ethan NORMALLY sleeps from 830 till 630. These last few nights are killer!!!! When he was sleeping through the night he gets a bath, a bottle with daddy and he falls asleep and then into the crib and he stays until morning. He wont take a pacifier so that kind of stinks....

Natalie has always been a good sleeper so we are so blessed at our house. If she wakes up during the night, she is almost always sick or working on a tooth.

She has one of those kick & play pianos and some stuffed animals in her bed now. During the week, I usually wake her up to eat and when we need to leave. I let her sleep on the weekends and we can hear her playing over the monitor. She talks to the animals and makes crazy noises. Cracks me up every time.

kolton is up about 2 times a night now.
He was waking literally ever other hour (as in 4+times a night at least)

now he's sleeping from 730-730 and sometimes (read almost ALWAYS) wakes up when we put DS1 to bed @ 830/9. But he's not hungry just interested. He'll wake up around 12/1 for food/snuggle and about 6 hungry then up for good around 730.

I found that turning down the moniter to the lowest setting helped. I was hearing him and assuming him awake and fussing. Now I've found he just makes noise in his sleep. so I wait till he makes more noise and is awake versus restless.
Thank you to Kiliki for my Siggy

Hudson "was" an amazing sleeper. However probably the last month or so, he has been waking 2-3 times a night SCREAMING! Not really sure what is going on. I would say teeth, but I have been saying that for six months and still nada haha!

We have come a long way baby!!! Brit has been sleeping from 7:30 until 6, nurses and then goes back to sleep until about 7:15 most nights. She does wake up here and there and I just go in and find her paci for her and then she goes back to sleep. She doesn't have bumpers on her crib so her paci's fall out a lot.
