Just wanted to know if anyone else has had any luck with sleep. My LO is down to 1 motn feeding and it's made a huge difference. He has his night time bottle at 8pm and I rock him to sleep with the sleep machine and this thing that lights up stars all over the room. It really helps him zone out and gives me enough light to not step on a plastic toy on my way out. He sleeps in the crib about 2 hours and then I just take him to my bed. My husband refuses to sleep train, acts like I've left him to the wolves if he cries in his crib for 2 minutes. Smh. My mom also said she can't handle sleep training and my dad already said he can't help but pick him up if he cries. So cosleeping works for now. I hope everyone else is having some improvement in the sleep dept.
Re: How's everyone doing on sleep?
Well dd had other plans and that one night with one wake up was her way of playing mind games. Ever since that night she is now waking every 1-2hrs. I feel like I have a newborn again. She's 15w so I'm hoping she's doing the sleep regression thing now and that she will at least drop back to two wake ups.
ETA: hubby and I were both on board with this method because we didn't feel like we were leaving her to cry by herself. She's fallen asleep a few times independently so we knew she could do it- she just has a very strong preference to be nursed to sleep. There was a lot of crying- learning how to fall asleep independently is a difficult thing to learn, and a change in the way you fall asleep after sleeping a certain way your whole life is big. I suppose we were more confident in our decision because although she was crying, we were there to reassure her and comfort her through the process and didn't feel like we left her alone to figure It out for herself. I suppose it's more of a gentle "sleep training" approach and it worked very well for us
