Hey Stew. How old is Arwynn? I absolutely read your story in early months.Congrats Sarah & Kevin!!...Piper is an awesome name
GG....my wife is wondering if there are any issues with letting our daughter cry it out for 45 mins in the the middle of the night. Arwynn's put to sleep around 8:30 and sleeps soundly until around 2am. Then she stands up in her crib and has a fit until we bring her into bed. I'm happy to let her cry it out until she passes out but my wife is concerned that it's bad for her. Is there anything to this?
Brooklyn & Piper are both adorable! And, I love the Bla Bla cat.
Vintage Fisher Price Little People toys - what do you all think of those? Toxic plastic or great because it's reused toys?
Thanks Maxine,Hey Stew. How old is Arwynn? I absolutely read your story in early months.
There is a little more to sleep training than letting your baby cry. First you want to get set up for success - proper sleep attire, proper room temp to allow her to be cozy, nice room ambiance and sleep train her in her crib until 7am. You NEED to be consistent. You can't go back and forth from crib to co-sleeping. If you are going to sleep train, go all the way. Also, day sleep plays a big part in how well she sleeps at night. Sleep begets sleep.
If you are interested in a consult to get yourself a 12 hour sleeper, email me: email@example.com

Apparently some of ours are wooden too so they're not that old (play)skool!my mom has an old school FP sesame street house thing that my kids play with at her house along with the camper van. some of the 'people' are plastic, but there are also some REALLY old skool wooden ones!
Is it teething?Omg 9 month sleep regression. What the fuck do I do? She normally goes to sleep at bedtime with minimal bullshit and sleeps til 5, 6. Lately been waking up wailing a couple hours in. Now its every fucking hour or so.
We did with the sleep training, and it worked (for now), though we were tackling a whole bunch of other sleep problems at the same time, so I can't really say if doing some sleep training in the morning would have worked if we hadn't dealt with all the other issues at the same time. Basically, we were told not to go in and get him before 7am. It really sucked for the first few days, but he'd cry for a little bit and then eventually fall back asleep. Eventually the early wake-ups stopped happening.Another sleep question, has anyone successfully shifted their child's wake up time to later?
THIS was so monumental for us. As soon as we got our little guy's night time attire perfected, he started sleeping much better. The other night he had a terrible sleep, up every hour or two crying. I thought he was teething but realized in the morning that I had forgotten to put the A/C on and it was a few degrees warmer in the apartment than normal. The next night, with the A/C back on, he was back to sleeping wonderfully.Are they cozy?
I prefer a cooler room 21.5-22 + sleeper(with or without feet) + weighted sleep sack(2.5tog). Or even a long sleeve onsie + weighted sleep sack. The 2.5sack is more cozy.
'swaddled this freak until 5 months' - LOLs. Love your humour.Ugh it sounds like I simply need to let her wail it out. She obviously could use that extra hour as she goes back to sleep within 10 minutes after I give her a bottle. But funny by the time I'm done changing her she's screaming for the thing like she's genuinely starved. (I worry I've trained her into this feed by accommodating these wake ups)
She's actually been a great sleeper because I did my suffering early in. I've swaddled this freak until 5 months which meant I never nursed her to sleep, because I had to swaddle her to out her down. I also never co slept but used an arms reach next to me. All that to say she learned quickly to get herself to sleep solo within a few minutes (typically) and I think she's actually like me.. Prefers her space to do that. Her only sleep crutch is a soother. I throw a couple in with her so there's always one within reach. And because she was a swaddle nut, safety became a concern so I transitioned her into a magic Merlin sleep suit. If you've never seen one, google it. Hilarious. I do that with a sleeper underneath and AC, blackout shades and a white noise app using a fan.
GeminiGirl, thank you so much (you too Leigh) for your advice. I'll be ringing for services you if this doesn't work.
Oh totally - room temp can F with sleep!THIS was so monumental for us. As soon as we got our little guy's night time attire perfected, he started sleeping much better. The other night he had a terrible sleep, up every hour or two crying. I thought he was teething but realized in the morning that I had forgotten to put the A/C on and it was a few degrees warmer in the apartment than normal.

We're moving soon to a new place w/out A/C and I'm so worried!
