On Becoming Babywise..Take 2

Today is Day 5 of our schedule training. Other than a couple of bumps in the road, Austin and Addie are learning well! For the past 2 nights, John and I have been able to put them down around 10ish, feed them when they wake up around 2 and then enjoy a longer snooze until 5 or 5:30. We're definitely not where we want to be as far as sleeping but much closer! John and I have actually woken up mildly refreshed vs. like zombies. It's kind of nice!

During the day, it's been a lot easier for me to handle both of them since we have a better routine going. I also get to enjoy a lot more playtime instead of feeling like I'm always feeding someone. We are still letting them cry it out a bit (not usually longer than 7 minutes or so) and they are getting better about soothing themselves to sleep.

I know there are a million different parenting views out there and an exhaustive list of books we could read. However, I feel we may have found a solution that works for us...for now!
