Nights 3 and 4 of "CIO"

For any of you who are interested in how things are going with the girls sleep patterns, heres the update. Wednesday night Hannah did wonderfully. I did not hear a peep. She went down at 8:15 after a little crying and slept until 7:45. Cannot complain there!! Leah had a rough night. about 3:45 she woke up screaming. I felt like she was in pain from teething actually. I went and checked on her and changed her diaper, and she was biting her lip really hard. So i gave her some teething tablets and some tylenol and made sure she was comfortable. She fussed and screamed and fussed a little more for about an hour and a half with some mini breaks in there. She slept until about 7 after finally going to sleep about 5:30. I really felt bad for her though. She is not a cryer unless something is legitimately wrong (normally).

Naps were ok on Thursday. Hannah cried for 15 minutes and slept. She got awoken by a slammed door downstairs (I was not happy) so she only slept for 20 minutes. Leah slept for an hour though! We missed our afternoon nap. I took them to a baby shower at work so they just slept in the car on the way there and back, which suited them just fine.

Last night was amazing. Again, Hannah cried for about 15 minutes and slept from 8:15 to 7. Leah went right down and slept til 7. I did give her some tylenol first though. I never heard a peep from either of them.

I am hoping to keep them separated for another week or so and then move Hannah back to her crib. I may have to keep the pack n play up for naps though. Leah sleeps longer without Hannah in there waking her up. So far, and I do not want to jinx it, but they are doing very well. Its been tough but it is getting easier! Lets hope for another good night tonight!

Sorry about my boring posts, but this will be good for me to read one day later IF I ever have any more kids! :)

I hate that the door woke her up. Noah is such a light sleeper that we have a stand alone fan in his room that we turn on when he is sleeping. It blows away from him, but we use it for the noise. It really works well for him. Helps to drown out noise. Just a thought

Not a boring post! We all like to keep up and see how the crying it out process is going for other people! Keep updating us- I am glad things are getting better (even if it does take time)!

THANK YOU for your post! I have 10 month-old twins and I have slept only one night since their birth, I need some help. I have read your blog and found it useful, THANK YOU for giving me the strength, I now need my sleep! The babies will be okay with a little bit of crying, their basic needs have been met, we'll be okay. That's my mantra for tonight!!!!!
