Spoke too soon

So guess what? The new bottles and increase in ounces worked and the boys slept like superstars.

For 3 nights.
Now what?
Yes, we are still charting. We’ve cut back on all of the details but at a minimum still keep track of when they eat, pee, and poop. (And it's not just because we're both accountants – it is a MUST). Anyway, here's a glimpse of our charting from Monday (last night's chart looks just like it). You do the math.

If I wasn't tired to the point of complete exhaustion I would go back through one of the three sleep-related books I have and develop Plan E.

At what age can you bribe reason with/negotiate with a child?


  1. We charted on our kids until they were 10 months!! You are is a necessity. Have you thought about cereal to keep them full? We started Eli on cereal at 4 months because he stopped sleeping through the night. Hang in there...sleep deprivation is no fun! Especially when you are working!

  2. I got nothin'. We did this until Mya was 8 months old and then we just let her cry. It's no fun at all and I didn't have to get up and go to work! Could it be teeth? I always used the excuse of a growth spurt, but then the "growth" never happened! Could you up their daytime ounces by one or two and then hopefully keep them full during the night? I have no idea. Sorry.
