She rarely falls asleep before 10, but usually before 1 am. When/if she wakes, I nurse her, change her (if she falls back asleep nursing which has happened a few times now) and then we play quietly until she acts tired and then I either walk with her until she falls back to sleep, or try nursing her back to sleep.
Does that make any sense at all?
We did the family bed for a few months, but it was not working for us, in many regards. Having her in the bass. in our room is perfect. In fact, I dont think she will be in her crib or in her own room for a long time, yet. (still working on DH about this)
I know I am lucky because she doesnt wake every few hours all night long, but if she did, I would be getting up with her. Like when she is in a growth spurt...
