I have been doing a series of posts for Huggies and BlogHer. It's all about the first year of your child's life and pregnancy. They give us topics and I have enjoyed it because a lot of it has been topics I have not discussed on here before so it gave me a reason to write about it. Or things I might not have written about.
I read the books........"Babywise" and "Healthy Sleeping Habits". I honestly tried all the tricks. I think some kids just are not born great sleepers. I hit the jackpot and got two of those. Yeay - lucky me! Harper was three before she slept through the night on a consistent basis. She now sleeps great (except on those few nights when she appears in our bed in the middle of the night). In fact, she is hard to get up most mornings and will sleep in until 8 when we don't have somewhere to go. I tried EVERYTHING. I promise that every tip you leave here - I will have tried.
(I need to add for those of you suggesting I take away her nap - that I would rather be up all night long than go all day with her and no nap (break for me). ) :-) I would be on caffeine AND xanax then.
