Here's my log from last night.
Some of the most helpful tips I've found from The No-Cry Sleep Solution are:
- Having a Consistent Bed and Nap Time! I can't believe how much this has helped. I try to keep it within a half an hour each night and sometimes she's zonked before we're even finished with our story time. Plus if I'm not home, it's easy for someone else to handle bed time when there is a set list of what to do.
- White Noise. One problem we have when we co-sleep is that Lizzie seems to have bat-like hearing. Every sniffle, throat-clear, and bed-creak would wake her up. Having that white-noise really reduced that threat.
- Regular naps. I've found the better and longer she naps during the day, the better she sleeps at night.
I'll keep updating as we continue using the tips from the book. At least I was able to get some time at night back to myself!
