Sleepy Moms Struggling to Get Children to Sleep

It's so nice to hear that other mom's are going through the same thing. After a week of being consistent with scheduling and how we put Munchkin to bed (not leaving her to cry one night and then staying with her the next. We stay with her for now.), Munchkin is starting to return to her sweet, fairly easy to get to sleep, self.

My advice:

  1. Come up with a plan.
  2. Stick with it for 7-10 days.
  3. Continue to tweak the plan until both you and your child are happy with the results. For example, right now I stay with Munchkin until she falls asleep, but soon I'll be moving further and further away from her bed until she goes to sleep on her own. It won't happen overnight, but it will happen. We've seen dramatic results in just a week. You will, too!
