Sleep Training

I know this sounds rather late. I should have sleep trained her from baby. Guess things are different with the third one and somehow, you just want to hold her a little longer. Nonetheless, the short naps and constant wakings at night had been really trying for Mommy who has to run a day's activity for 3 kids. Exhaustion was almost unbearable and we decided to let the screams go. It started with a whole hour or more of wailing when put to bed. She was practically sleeping in a sitting position or over her legs as if doing sit and reach. Cold turkey as it says, it took less than a week and the message was clear. The crying shortened and Keren has learnt to just sit quietly in the cot or play with her toys till she lies down to sleep. She also seemed to sleep longer. Haha or probably out of exhaustion from the cries. Irregardless of all, it's good for Mommy and her.
