That worked fine for awhile (about a year) until it became apparent that she needed some consistency. Going to bed at night was the biggest problem. She stayed up until she started to lose it and then it was like herding cats to try and get her to sleep. We used the Sleepeasy Solution [endorsed by Jack Black and Conan O'Brien, two personal favorite funny people of mine] and finally had things straightened out.
But now I've got double trouble. Yes, I realize that these boys are just tiny personages. But they've hit the 10 pound mark (hip, hip, hooray!) and I've heard that at 10 pounds a person is capable of sleeping through the night with no snackies. How on earth do you get to that point? I'm sure that some of you know [Sarah O. & Vhari--you definitely know... spill]. I've been feeling pretty awesome that my babies will eat at the same time as each other, but now I'm thinking that sleeping more would be super awesome.
Don't worry, I'm a loving mother and I'm not up for leaving these babies to fend for themselves all night, but if I could get me some sleep I'd be better equipped to deal with the day-time mayhem that is my life.
I met a mother the other day who sat down and told me the exact times her 4 month old eats every day and that she puts her down for bed at 9:30 pm and doesn't hear from her again until 8:30 am. What the? Lives like that really exist? For now, it's just a dream. An impossible dream.
