Levi is generally a good baby... but, he has LOTS of trouble falling asleep at night. Last night we were up till 1:30am with him crying half in and out of sleep. Whenever we'd lay him down, he'd wake right back up. This has been going on for 8 weeks now, and we are TIRED (literally and figuratively) of it! So, we decided to start sleep training tonight, for everyone's good. We didn't start sleep training with Colt until he was 6 months old, and after 3 nights of letting him cry it out, wished we would've started sooner. Ty and I are planning a trip to NYC in a few weeks, and will leave Levi with his grandparents. Since we don't want them to endure this misery every evening, we thought we'd go ahead and start sleep training tonight. Well, I'm proud to announce that Levi only cried for 30 minutes, then whimpered for about 5 before he finally fell asleep. He is so much better than Colt, who cried for an hour and a half before he went to sleep on his first night of sleep training. Thank goodness for one night down!
