I am going to follow that with a big Ugh! Why do I feel like everyone makes getting a baby on a schedule seem so easy?!?! And why does it make me feel crazy when people ask constantly about my babies schedule?!?!?! And why do people think that 3 months is the magic number for sleeping all night and having a 3 nap schedule and sleeping in his crib!?!?!
This topic literally gives me palpitations and anger. Yes Luke still wakes up at night. I have tried the whole pacify him but he at this point still needs that night feeding. We do have a nighttime routine down fairly well, but that's about as good as we have it.
Since I am going back to work next week, I am really working on the napping thing. He is transitioning to it pretty good. We are getting in about 3 naps a day, but I just have an issue with making him stay awake and getting overtired to make it to the next nap time.
Since he does still wake up at night, we have not transitioned him to his crib. I just can't see myself traipsing upstairs at 3 in the morning when I can just lean over and grab him. And really I don't think his sleep is being compromised by sleeping with us, and I am pretty sure mine would be even more so. Maybe a little selfish on my behalf.
So I am asking for your realistic tips and tricks in setting a schedule, transitioning to the crib, and sleeping through the night. And be honest! Don't act like it happened overnight if it didn't, it doesn't help us new mommies and our anxiety.
