Well .... its been 5 full nights since we turned our nurturing into training.
Night 3 she woke up around 6 am and we needed to train for about 25 minutes. Then she slept till 8. The past 2 nights however. NOT A PEEP. Ive been waking her up at 8am. She was still on a 10pm bedtime but she just was having nothing to do with that. So with Debbie's help we have tweaked a schedule that works in having her take 2 hr naps but since she cant handle a 2 hr awake time yet. We have altered it for her. Shes wanting bedtime earlier then 10. So tonight we are trying 930 out. and if she aces it (as i am confident she will) we will do a 9pm bedtime tomorrow. Its later then most families do kids bedtimes. BUT it works with our family life. She sleeps till 8am same as my 2 yr old son. Our feeding routine has had to be altered a bit because shes loosing a nap. That makes me feel empty all the time so im on a milk boosting mission. Pump, feed, Lactaid and water.... BRING IT ON!!
Naps have been great. The odd one we have had to train. But seriously... the girl giggles when i put her in her crib... she LOVES to sleep.
Today was our first nap on the go.. not so great.. but hey... i needed to get some things for our upcoming vacation with her. ONE WEEK WITHOUT MY SON... Ekkk... anxiety is starting to kick in... what am i going to do for a week with no one to chase... go nuts im sure. I'll finally relax right when its time to come home.
alright... its 1130pm... i gotta
