Sleeping Through the Night Training-Night 2

Isn't she just so sweet when she's sleeping? Ok, she sweet all the time. Sometimes a stinker, but always sweet. :)

Last night was SO much better! I fed her at 9pm, she woke up 2:15, I put in her paci and she went back to sleep till 3:15. Then she kinda fussed around (no screaming this time, thankgoodnes!) and I kept getting up every 10 min or so and putting her paci in, and she fell back asleep sometime between 3:45 and 4.

Then she slept until 6:45, which was great except for the fact that then she was ready to start the day.

I was not. :)

Thankfully Luke was up getting ready for work, so he watched her and put her back to sleep before he left.

Downside of her doing well...the past 2 days she's been a grump! Totally off schedule, fussy, won't sleep for more than 45 minutes for each nap...I'm sure I'll feel better by sleeping all night, I just hope she does too!

Sounds like you're doing good! It's always trial and error with children (and yourself) - you just never know what they're going to throw you.

I do know a few books have mentioned that it takes at least 3 - 5 nights (min) to break habits & start new ones. Just be aware that you're already getting into the habit of getting up and putting the paci in every time she wakes up...that will start a whole nother habit to where if the paci falls out in the middle of the night it actually wakes them up and since she's not old enough yet to find the paci & put it in, it will wake her up and she'll cry until you come in to put the paci back in.
