We are doing much better than we were a couple of weeks ago... thank goodness! I had just about reached the breaking point. Naps are still not consistent, but he will occasionally take one now, so that's an improvement . At night he has started doing one 4-6 hour stetch, eats, then goes back down for 2-3 hours. It's been wonderful to sleep for more than one hour at a time! Right now he sleeps best in his bouncy seat- he likes to be on an incline. I keep meaning to start having him nap in his crib, or at least move the bouncy seat into his room, so he can get used to it. Maybe I will start that on Monday.
I relate to that DD2 slept with me until she was almost 21 months old and getting her out of my bed was still awful at that age, that's when I vowed that if we had more kids I wouldn't cosleep I have still just not all night. DS1 coslept until he was about 3-4 months and then we moved him to his crib and Isaiah sleeps most of the night in his crib but when he wakes up (he only wakes once, early am) I bring him into bed with us until it's time to wake up. He's getting close to sleeping through the night so hopefully he'll just cut that out all on his own. He only sleeps in his crib if he's swaddled or on his belly though, at night we swaddle, naps on his belly.

We are still having a rough time over here!! Daniel just doesn't stay asleep for any longer than maybe 20 minutes at a time and at night he is waking every hour or so.
I put him down when he isn't fussy so I don't understand. When things like this happens, I always question my milk supply.

Alot better. She's down for the night about 1030 after a feeding. That feeding usually puts her to sleep.then up between 6 and 7 to eat then will usually sleep until the next feeding. During the day she may sleep in the bouncer, the swing, my chest. We are working on getting her to the crib, last night was the first night in the crib and she did good. Then naps should be in the crib too. Her naps are usually 1-2 hours then up for an hour or so. For the most part she is usually in my arms to fall asleep or falls asleep after eating. If she falls asleep on her own its usually after screaming her head off which isn't often cuz I can't handle it
