Our 15-month-old still wakes up frequently at night, and my wife and I talk regularly about wanting to try more of the No-Cry Sleep Solution ideas. I was wondering if there is anyone else in a similar situation who might be interested in supporting each other as we try No-Cry (or other very gentle) sleep nudging techniques. I'm imagining checking in frequently with each other to share sleep logs, what we tried, etc. I have no idea if this would actually help, but it seems like it could be useful to have another set of eyes on how things are going both to give advice and hold us a little bit accountable. Is anyone else interested in this?

We did this with our first. I was really stressed out about what I thought sleep should be. It took a long, mostly worked, and took a LOT of work. I am totally opposed to any CIO so I guess that is a plus.

 

With my second I just coslept until age 2 and it was a LOT easier to just submit. Sleep was easier all around, certainly less stressful, and transitions weren't a big deal.

Hi Judi! Thanks for responding. We mostly co-sleep with our little guy, but we're still trying to encourage him to do more sleeping (and less being awake!) in our bed. It's good to hear that the transitions weren't hard for you when you stopped co-sleeping.
