Our CIO Journey: Night 2 and the morning After

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.

 

Day 3, the morning after CIO night 2

Nap time 😴 Has anyone used CIO for night be not naps or naps by not night or night but not middle of the night or naps? I'm sure it's best to do it all at once but she needs to sleep, right🤔🤐
