Ask another Mom: How do I get my child to sleep….

I can’t sleep because my kids are taking turns waking me up. My daughter wakes up at 11:00PM  and 3:30 AM. The baby in my belly is up from 9:00 PM-10:00 PM and 4:00AM -5:30 AM. I require sleep so this has been a real problem for the past couple of weeks.  I can resolve one of the issues because she is on the outside of the world. The one in my belly is something I am going to have to deal with.

I have to say my daughter was a super sleeper, then I let daddy put her to bed. Daddy rocked her and gave her a bottle. Now we have a huge problem. She wants a bottle at bed time and to be rocked. I got rid of the rocking but the bottle is turning into a nightmare. She wakes up in the middle of the night and calls out for myself or my husband with the word ba ba ba ba in a diligent chant. I now have to start over in the sleep training process. We are currently trying  Dr. Weissbulth’s method and so far so good. I thought perhaps some of you are struggling with a child who isn’t sleeping.  This book was recommend to me Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Dr. Weissbulth. My friend the super, amazing, wonderful Caren, pointed out that the Weissbluth method can be viewed on You Tube.

What do you do to insure your children sleep through the night? I know we all have our tricks. I mean, Renae uses oust to scare away the monsters
