Sleep!?



So you mean not everyone wakes up 5 or more times a night?! I thought that was normal! But my mommy and daddy are trying to get me into a routine so I'll sleep more at night. Mommy got a book called "No Cry Sleep Solution" by Elizabeth Pantley. So these days mommy or daddy give me a bath around 7ish and then lotion me up with a little massage and next I put on my jammies. After all that I get to eat while I'm rocked to sleep. That's the easy part, but once I get put down in my crib I wake back up. So now they warm up my bed with a heating pad so it's nice and cozy when they put me down. Normally the longest span of sleep that I have is 2 hours, and my mom says that she is going a little crazy. We've been working on this for one week so far. I don't think that mommy or daddy see much difference yet, but they say they're gonna stick with it... so we'll see. Wish them luck!

Kristin - I will be wishing you luck in your nighttime sleep endeavors. May I also recommend Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Mark Weissbluth. It offers many suggestions to help correct sleep problems.

Oh I remember those days...they weren't that long ago. Nathanael was exactly the same up until close to his 1st birthday. I went thru a ton of concealer for the dark cirlces under my eyes :) Good luck! It's tough to get thru but you'll get there. Love the picture!
