Last night was rebellion night. Everyone warns you that on about night five there will be a rebellion night where it seems like everything you have done with regards to sleep training goes straight out the window.
I knew it would happen but, my goodness it was unpleasant. I was up with the boys every hour again and Lion Cub was awake for about an hour from about 3am onwards. Once he went to sleep Monkey woke up and was awake for the next hour and a half.
Today they seem no worse for wear and have been napping well.
Sleep training feels like a leap of faith. You are supposed to do these seemingly bizarre routines and rituals, and somehow your babies will suddenly start sleeping well. I was apprehensive as to how it would work, now a week later it is amazing how much better the boys are sleeping.
Angel Nanny and I both have so much more time in the day because we aren’t spending all day rocking babies to sleep and holding sleeping babies.
It really has worked. I can definitely recommend Tracey Hogg’s books for any mom who wants to get their children to sleep but doesn’t want to leave their baby/ies to cry-it-out.
