Let’s talk sleep training. I know it’s a sketchy subject in some circles, but it’s a very real concern in our house right now. We have a system set up that allows most of us to get some sleep at night. But honestly? It sucks. We are rounding very close to a year of this system, and I’m over it.
We put them in their cribs after they fall asleep, they stay there for an hour, wake up screaming, then Mr. E takes one to our room to sleep and I get the other on the couch. (It’s a very comfy couch and I fit better than my husband.)
I’m tired of not owning our room. My son spends more time in there than I do!
To add insult to injury, they refuse to nap correctly. They will only fall asleep in the car or on me. Uuuugh.
I know we dug ourselves these holes. It worked for a while. At month 15, it’s not working anymore.
So we’ve decided to sleep train.
We’ll start it soon. We are done traveling for a few months. Both are almost done with the colds they had. It’s time.
I’m terrified because I know it’s going to involve a good amount of crying from all of us; but man am I excited for the outcome.
Any advice? How did you get your twins to sleep correctly?
