Sleep Regression - Graduation Day!

Quinn has officially graduated from her sleep bootcamp! We wanted her to have 3 good nights of sleeping past 5am before Teagan gets moved back into their room. Yesterday morning she slept until 7 and this morning she woke around 6:30. Huge progress! I have to say that I feel like a whole new person having had a few good nights of sleep!

From what I've learned, I'm really happy that we dealt with these issues early. I've met a few moms of 8 month old+ babies who are dealing with sleep issues. The issues have been difficult to resolve because their babies can now sit on their own and even pull themselves up. I think that this is when sleep sacks come in handy. They might make babies a little less mobile.

I know that we will not be without other sleep issues, but for now, I'll take what I can get!


  1. Glad to hear the sleep training went well.

    Also, The Bean has had NO problem standing, sitting, crawling, etc. in his sleepsack. Of course, we could probably put him in a straight jacket and he would still figure out how to get around.

  2. @Allison - Your little guy is an anomaly! I've seen him move so I'm not surprised that nothing stops him!!

  3. Nice to "meet" you. Came here from Allison's blog. We are a 2 mom family in the GTA too.

    Those sleep sacks don't prevent anything--Riley used to stand in them too. :P

    Sleep issues are one of the toughest. Our kids didn't sleep well until they turned 3. Well, I'm hoping Jackson (2.5) will be the same as Riley (4.5) and make that turn at 3... lol

  4. @Stacey - Nice to "meet" you too! Good to know about the sleep sacks! I was hoping that if we experienced issues in the future, the sacks would help! ...all the more reason to deal with our issues now ;)
