Sleep Training Method

Sleep Training Method

I don’t know what y’all believe in

I personally just believe in life

Last night at around 11 J woke up crying, I was having such a hard time getting him settled.

I’m trying not to breastfeed as often, as we are “weaning” breastfeeding. {I put quotes because I don’t think it’s happening any time soon, slow weaning here!}

I didn’t want to put him in to bed as this momma wants more of her nights back.

So here I am… a little quick sanned.

At almost 13 months, J has NEVER slept through the night.

Wow that hurt a little to type, that after all my hard- work, at trying to do right at every little thing.I have failed him at one really big thing.

Falling asleep on his own

11:11 I asked for help at wits end, I thanked the angels for their guidance until this far and I begged that my focus be put on J and his sleeping habits.

The rest of the night wasn’t any better but, this morning I found AMotherFarFromHome.com

I found her post about the tried and true sleeping method.

It felt like something shifted, He took one nap around 2 hours or so.

It was fantastic! It felt like I was being encouraged to put my focus on this.

Day 2, J needed a morning nap, he just couldn’t make it any longer let alone an hour or more like it would need to be. He only napped for 45 minutes in the morning and around an hour or so in the afternoon.

Update on night 2, J has been asleep for THREE hours on his own. Can we say win?? I am feeling confident in this you guys.

What are your sleeping tips for me?

What are your Favorite Children’s Books? Day 17 of the 31 Day Blog Challenge.

What are your Favorite Children’s Books? Day 17 of the 31 Day Blog Challenge.

Baby J has a few books he really likes. I’m not sponsored or anything but I will share the link to a spot you can buy the books I list.

Your Favorite Childhood book!

Day SEVENTEEN of the 31 Day Blog Challenge

When I asked Marc this, he thought more advanced books, I immediately thought childrens. Especially since I’ve started a bed time routine with J. We read a few (okay like five or six) books and calm down so that he knows it’s time to sleep.

What are you favorite children’s books?

  So Big!Is one of J’s Favorites for sure, I’ve been reading it to him since he was six months old. I feel like it really helped with Mama and Dada, it’s also helping still, he smiles so big when we read it! Such a happy guy.

I really wish I had this set of books but baby J has two favorites in here! Bubbles Bubbles I think is his second fav, next to So Big! He is trying to say bubbles right now, he will boycott sleep some nights and you hear him saying mama ‘bubbles bubbles’ in J talk.

The other book in this set that J adores is Nighty Nite, he LOVES elmo. Little A passed down many elmo things to J and he always smiles at Elmo. This book says comforting words and is perfect for building a routine. I usually read it last.

Another one that I think he’s beginning to enjoy is Find the Teddy It has you look for teddy, hide and go seek style. It’s a good ‘mood booster’ when he has the bedtime blues. We all should know by now J hates bedtime.

Is there any books your kiddos love? Share in the comments below!
