So we started implementing our plan for Kaelan to sleep in his crib. It has gone well. We put him through his bedtime ritual of bath, breastfeed and burp. Then we sing to him and put him in his crib for the night. He seems to go to sleep just fine! Most of the time this is before Miranda goes to bed for the night as well. We start him before or by the time she begins eating her dinner. She then does her ritual as well; bath, breastfeed and down in the crib with a song. They have practiced going to sleep at the same time as well. In fact, she seemed to go to sleep before him on that occasion.
Now he sleeps from about 6 pm to about 3 am. He is then fed again and I just tried last night putting him in the crib again. It took a bit of time for him to sleep again, but he did. He’s been waking up in the mornings some time between 5:30 and 6 am. So–so far so good!!! 🙂
