When will he sleep through the night??

I am still praying and believing that my little man will adjust and finally start sleeping through the night.  Anyone else out there have a baby that refuses to sleep in long spurts?  He goes to sleep around 7:30-8 and then is up around 11:30 and then every 2-2.5 hours after that??  I am trying to get him to learn some self soothing techniques...any ideas?  He is a really good boy but struggling with the whole waking up so often.  He is 10 months old and has 2 teeth with more coming.

only thing that ever worked for me was Ferber. However, don't do it during teething, big transitions or big milestones...It wont work. My girls never really cried more than 15 mins.

Another book I really liked was the No Cry Sleep solution. It gave so many great ideas that I used along with the Ferber method, which I think helped things along. I really liked the idea of setting routines, etc. For instance I sing the exact same song to my girls when I am putting them to bed. When I start to sing that song they know that it is time to go to sleep. Good Luck! I know how hard it can be :)

Aww, I'm sorry to hear this - this must make for one tired Momma! I remember the days well (my son is 2.5) and sometimes I even MISS them!

I still semi-swaddled Logan when I put him down when he was about 9 months old. I can't remember how long I did this for, though... I just kind of rolled him up in a blanket like a little rollie pollie. :) It worked for him.

I hope you find something that works soon! :)

oh no! this is what we did with our first and continued the routine with alex (9 months old) - they are both sleeping from 730-630am (though i dont get them out of their room until 7am).

after dinner (6pm), clean up and bathtime, get ready for bed.

once ready - dim lights, no tv, no music/radio. we read books. whether it is all together or andrew "reads" to alex (he's the 2 yr old). we just keep it quiet and calm.

7 rolls around and it is bedtime. they share a room, so they do talk to each other, but they fall asleep rather quickly.

if that doesnt work - let him fuss for a bit. it will not hurt him to fuss for 10 minutes. just dont get him up. go in and tell him you love him and its time for nite nite and walk out. it may take a few days, but it will be WELL WORTH IT!

good luck! i'm here for ya girl!

My Memory Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway!  (#1 rated scrapbook software)  The above is one of the scrap pages I have created.  Super easy and super fast.  I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book.  I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments!  The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes!  :)  SO EASY!   Here is a great video explaining more about the product.  There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.  THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online.  The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create.  :) One feature t

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
