2 out of 2 parents agree

Now that Joseph sleeps, he's the most awesome baby ever!

Aw, thanks! I like you guys, too.

Hi Jen. I follow your blog because I have a 14 month old son who is still breastfed and it is interesting to hear about Joseph's development. Your post about him sleeping is very inspirational. We are currently going throught the same thing with the lack of sleep issue and I am glad to hear that there may be light at the end of the tunnel. I am currently nursing to sleep and am trying to figure out how to end that. I was just wondering if you feel that Joseph's progress was due to some of the sleep training that you guys did or if you feel that he just really learned to sleep on his own?

Hey Nicole,

I think it's a little of both. I stopped nursing him to sleep, but before that my husband could get him to sleep w/o nursing, so it's not like he'd never done it. We also became comfortable letting him cry for a few minutes - but he ended up crying 30sec-3min at bedtime for a couple days, and now he rarely cries. We had a rough night last night, and I don't know what to make of it, but I'm hopeful that it was an abberation.

Mostly I think he was just ready. Because really, if he does stuff like last night, nothing we do can "make" him sleep. He was up every hour crying and even when I waited 3-5 min it didn't make him quiet down. Once I went in there and gave him a hug (didn't even pick him up) he'd lay back down, but only for another hour. ::shrug::

Good luck, it really is amazing when you can rely upon them sleeping.
