Sleep Progress

Thursday Night Adam & I decided that Logen HAS to learn to self-soothe and put himself to sleep. So, we explained to him what was going to happen and the "sleeping" reward system. We read books as a family in the living room and then tucked Logen into his bed. (instead of Adam laying down with him)

Thursday night: Logen cried for 1 hour 15 minutes and slept the ENTIRE night!
Friday night: Logen went to bed amazingly-- NO TEARS! Slept all night!
Saturday night: Logen cried for about 20 minutes and slept all night!
Sunday night: Logen didn't cry, but got out of bed 2x. Woke up once, came into our room w/o tears and went back to sleep in his room well.

His reward system: He has a sticker chart. He gets a sticker for no tears and a sticker for not getting out of bed. Last night, he only got one sticker. We use the same chart for potty training. He gets 1 sticker for going #1 and 2 stickers for going #2. I'm not 100% convinced he "gets" this, but he really enjoys putting stickers on his chart. After about 15 stickers- he gets to pick a prize from his "treasure chest" full of cars, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, stretchy slimy critters, bouncy balls, etc.

I'm hoping he continues to do well! It sure is nice to beable to sit on the couch with Adam and not have our children climbing all over us! Big-people time is great!! LOL
