I did them because I was curious. not to sleep shame any babies.
I'm struggling here with sleep and need ideas. Baby goes to sleep around 6:30, wakes before 6 (today 5:45 so not too bad), two naps for around 2.5 hours total. He is getting enough sleep but Im not. he wakes up 2x per night and wants to nurse. we did CIO to nap and bed time train with great success, he fusses for 5 minutes and falls asleep. Sleep books I read said nursing up to 2x a nine months is not uncommon. I know i may have to just suck it up but any ideas? I cant put him to bed later because he is a mess by then. If I put him down at 5, he is awake by 5am. He doesn't want to nap in the afternoon.
DD was/is an early riser. she also didnt STTN until 15 months. and it was hard.
I think i need to break the nurse to sleep habit.
second question on loveys: DS seems to like his A&A blanket. but I left it in once and it was tangled around him. I worry he will strangle himself. Moms whose babies have blankets what do you do?
