Follow the yellow brick road, follow the yellow brick road… I feel like this is a signature path we are on. This journey is HARD, but it is also so rewarding. Sleep is important, not just so we aren’t crabby, but as a growing child, sleep is needed for development. Sleep training can be difficult, read about Sleep Training Decisions , or the other nights on our journey here, Sleep is a Precious Thing.
CIO Night Two update.
Night two was by far the HARDEST night of them all. She was on and off for basically a full 7 hours. She wasn’t upset the whole time, but ugh the frustration of a child sitting up sleeping is something I wouldn’t wish anyone else to ever have to deal with! Looking back I am SOOOO glad that I stuck it out. This was a major turning point for us! The only thing I wish I would have done earlier was practice laying down with her. SHOWING her how she could lay down on her own.
