Gavin is not a good sleeper. And we haven't been very good about "sleep training". I've started writing this post at least 3 times and never finished or posted anything because his sleep habits change so frequently.
I know a little bit about what we need to do to get him to sleep because we did it with Emily and it worked, she's an awesome sleeper. But with Gavin, it's different- totally different. It's like he doesn't need sleep!
-- He goes to bed at 7:00 every night- we feed him to sleep- a big no, no in the sleep training world- I know this has to change.
-- He wakes up around 12:00 and has a bottle, goes back to sleep.
-- Then he wakes up at anywhere from 3:45- 5:30 and is up for the day. Seriously- awake and WILL NOT go back down. And if you try to keep him in the dark or keep him quiet all hell breaks loose. Boy wants his toys and he doesn't care if it's 4am.
He only takes 2, 1 hour naps at daycare (sometimes less).
He won't take a paci and the only thing that will calm him down enough to go to sleep is a bottle.
We haven't been able to really let him "cry it out" because he is loud and Emily wakes up.
Someone send help (and chocolate).
