Callan has always been a good sleeper, thank goodness. There have only a handful of nights that we were up every other hour. When he does wake up, he eats and 99% of the time goes right back to sleep. Every once in a while he wants to party! When this happens he goes into the swing, which he loves. I have never tried a schedule or sleep training. On Saturday he woke up when I laid him down and I told Bryan I was going to give it 10 minutes before going in to get him. I made it 3 minutes! I am a softy when it comes to him crying. It really breaks my heart! This past week he has been taking about 3 30 minute naps during the day. I don’t mind the short naps, because he is sleeping 7 hour stretches at night!!! I am really hoping this phase lasts since I am going back to work.
For mothers out there…How did you sleep train? My plan was to wait until he starts daycare. That way he will be on their nap schedule.
