The past few nights, we have been sleep training Charlotte to sleep through the night. What does that mean you might ask… Well, when she wakes up for her mid-night snack, we let her cry it out. The first night, she woke up at 1 am, cried for an hour and then went back to sleep. The second night was similar(ish)… Although, we fell asleep and lost track of time.
And last night… Well. Let’s just say she slept through the night! Here’s what we know… The monitor volume was only at 1 (and is usually at a 3 or 4). Mark and I both had dreams that Charlotte was crying. And Charlotte slept until 7:50 am… She usually wakes up between 5:30 and 630.
So, I’m not really sure if she slept through the night or not. Which leads me to, if a tree falls in the woods, does it make a sound?
Ooh, you’ll have to let me know how this goes! I’m terrified of sleep training and of my little guy not getting enough milk. But at the same time, there’s no way that I can keep up the getting up every couple of hours forever! This mama will need her sleep eventually! So I’d love it if you wrote a post at some point as to how it’s going. I definitely plan to sleep-train in the future as well!!! 🙂
I will absolutely give you an update. Last night we cranked the volume on the monitor and she did wake up a couple times. Once at around 9:30… she fussed for about 20 minutes (not real crying) and then went back to sleep and then again around 2. I fell back asleep at the 2 am wake up, but I think she fussed (again, not real crying) for maybe 30-45 and then fell back asleep. Pretty good in my book! I’ll write a full “report” after a week.
