Miranda and sleep problems

Overall Miranda is doing great. But sleep has always been a point of contention. She doesn't like sleeping unless she naturally just falls over tired. A lot of times we will do certain repetitive things that tend to lead to sleep, but most of the time it just doesn't work. That said, she slept in on Saturday (which gave me some time to place some crackdown which is super addictive) and had 2 long naps in the day, so needless to say she didn't go to bed till midnight and then didn't sleep very much. So today she had one long nap with little sleep last night so we are hoping that that is enough to have her sleep long and well tonight.

Congrats to Dr. Bucko and Mrs. Bucko (although I am not sure how she can stand him :) ) on the birth of the first child. Another xbox live user that will find it is sometimes hard to get some time at the machine. But it is worth it.

Yup - we have exactly the same problem with Nathan. We've found that using the Ferber method (letting him cry himself to sleep) works pretty well, except when it doesn't. He was having a pretty rough patch over the last month or so where at first he would wake up three times during the night and would only go to sleep when nursed. This week he's changed his habits yet again and started staying up till 9:30 or 10:00 every night and waking up at 2:00 to eat & 6:30 for good. The former was working better for Elissa as she has to wake up most nights to feed him anyways, but terribly for me as I'm not used to that, but the latter is working much better for me as I'm getting more sleep in a row.
