    How was last night for everyone? Did you make any changes? Have any successes or reversions?

    I am starting tonight to get her in her crib. I think starting on the weekend will work better for us. And I am definately motivated after the last couple of nights, I lost track of the times she woke up.

    Also can babies retake to a paci if they haven't had it full time for awhile? Darcy would take a paci and then I kind of got lazy with it and she really didn't seem to mind, but now when I give it to her she will pull it out and just chew on it and not really suck. Should I just keep offering it to her or just let it go?
    I know a lot of her wakings the last couple of nights are not for eating because I don't think she is really awake, she just can't soothe herself back to sleep.

    ETA: How was your night with Leo?

    Hi Sarah!

    Last night was OK, I guess. He fell asleep on his own in his crib, which is great. But he was still up 5 times. That's better than 10 though. LOL!!! He took a nap fantastically already this morning too, so that's good. I'm hoping that with everytime he puts himself to sleep without nursing (like he does for naps and at bedtime) that he will slowly lose his nightwaking.

    I'm not sure on the paci. I know that my firstborn wouldn't take one until he was 4 months old...so it could be worth trying. But, at the same time, this is a good age to wean them from it. Right now it's a crutch for Leo...I have to go upstairs and put it back in his mouth when it falls out and that's hard on both of us. I kind of wish that he wouldn't take one because then he could fall alseep without needing me to put it back everytime he opens his mouth.

    5 times is much better than 10 and that is great that he is doing so good at putting himself to sleep, I am sure in no time he will be rid of those nightwakings.

    I agree on the paci, I am torn because I want her to have a way to soothe herself/something for comfort besides me but I also don't want her to be stuck on it.

    Hello ladies! I just wanted to update you because we had a great night last night! I decided that I just can't take nursing him to sleep and having my nunnie taken hostage anymore, so no more nursing to sleep. At bedtime we put him in the crib (also new, as he's been cosleeping up to now) and he protested for a good long time. DH and I took turns going in to calm him every 5 minutes, but that just made him angry, so we finally just left him alone for a bit. He finally fell asleep on his own about an hour after bedtime, slept almost 4 hours, had a quick cuddle, back down, protested for about 30 seconds then fell asleep. He slept another 2 hours, woke up for nunnies and then I put him back down, he protested for another 30 seconds and fell asleep for another 4 hours. So a fantastic night for us!!!

    Naptime is another story. He's not giving in. It's been 1 1/2 hours already. Ugh. I've gone in to calm him a couple times, but it's the same story. He just gets pissed off.

    But small steps, right? I have to say, at 6 months there is NO way he would have fallen asleep like he did last night.

    Thanks for your update, you give me hope that I won't be nursing Darcy to sleep forever.

    I wish I knew the secret. We had a horrible night last night! She went down at 7:30pm. Then she woke up at 9:00pm, 1:00am, 5:30am, 6:45am, and 8:00am wake up. I don't know what is happening to my baby! It's like a completely different child from 2 weeks ago! She usually takes a 2-4 hour nap in the morning/early afternoon. She only slept for 1 hour this morning and hasn't gone back to sleep yet. Luckily DH is home this afternoon to give me a break. She won't go to sleep unless she has just eaten either. *sigh* Not sure what to do. I figure I have to wait until she's eating solids and/or taking a bottle to know if she truly needs more to eat.
