Sleep Training

I've had every intention of sleep training Carter but there's always been a reason not to that particular weekend. He's sick, I'm sick, he just got out of his swaddle so let him get used to that, we're out of town, etc.

The past couple days I've let him cry it out when he wakes up in the middle of the night. Well, not really CIO because he's more fussing than anything. I've noticed that it usually takes less than 10 minutes, and he goes back to sleep. Imagine that! Here I was "rescuing" him every night, when all he wanted to do was get back to sleep and be left alone.

The past two nights? I've gotten up at 4:30 and 5:00, respectively. Yes, he's woken up a few times before thenbut hasn't cried hard enough for me to get him. My boobs have, but he hasn't. :-)

I hope that by posting this I haven't jinxed it...

Ryan's been doing the same thing - in bed at 7:30-8, wakes around 3:30-4, back to sleep until the AM. I don't get out of bed for him, unless he screams his head off because he's gone and pushed his arm/leg through the bars. Well done little C!!!
