Sleep Training – Day 6

Nap 1 (2 hours, 8 minutes)

Put in crib at 9:20am (1h, 38m since waking up)

Didn’t start crying right away – just kind of rolled around and played with his blanket and whined

Started crying lightly at 9:34

Settled down and fell asleep at 9:36!

Woke up at 10:16 – starting to try nap lengthening today

Set a timer for 20 minutes, since he only slept 40 and we want him to sleep for an hour minimum

He started crying as soon as he woke up, so I was going to go in at 10 minutes to soothe him, but he calmed and fell asleep again at 10:26! Started crying again at 10:29. Settled down again at 10:30.

Slept until 11:44!!

Nap 2 (34 minutes)

Put in crib at 1:55 (2h, 11m since last nap)

Didn’t really start crying, just whining

Fussed/cried on and off and fell asleep at 2:10

Woke up at 2:44 and started rolling around and talking to himself – set the timer for 30 minutes

Really just played the whole time and only started crying the last few minutes

Nap 3 (35 minutes)

Put in crib at 4:26 (1h, 42m since last nap)

Fell asleep at 4:36 without needing soothing

Slept until 5:11


Put in crib at 7:05 (1h, 54m since last nap)

Started crying right away but not too bad

Went in to soothe at 7:20 after 15 minutes

Fell asleep at 7:22

Needed paci put back in at 8:30

Ate at 10:20

Up crying at 12:20 – decided to try to start dropping a few night feedings, so let cry on and off for 40 minutes (replaced paci a few times)

Fed at 1am, 4:05am, and 5:44am

Woke up at 6:50 but was happy playing in crib so left him in there for 40 minutes to try and teach him that wake time should be 7:30am

Total cry time: 40 minutes

Total awake (happy) time: 7 hours, 43 minutes

Total sleep time: 15 hours, 37 minutes (broken for feedings)

*Sidenote – he has been doing the most adorable thing where he cuddles his blanket stuffed animals and strokes their heads while he is sleeping…..my heart melts
