Operation Cry It Out.
One of two things happened. 1) We were divinely led to start the process 10 days ago (not a day soon, not a day later), and that is why it was relatively painless. Possible. 2) Our babes are giant scammers and could have slept through the nights months ago, and gave in easily because they knew the jig was up. Probable.
Before the process began, this was our schedule:
Bed at 7:30-8:00
Snack at 10:00-10:30 before Momma went to bed
One or both up for snack at 2:00
Other or both up for snack at 5:00
Up for the day at 6:30
Bed at 8:00
Snack at 10:30 before I went to bed
Quiet whining at 5:00 that we ignored
Snack at 6:15
Up for the day at 7:30!!
Sleep is never over-rated. It's important. The babes are loving it, the 'rents are loving it, even Roxie is pleased with the progress!!
Thanks for your encouragement!
The Rested Momma
