Problem: J2 can’t stay asleep, and when he wakes up he gets out of bed and comes to our room.
Hypothesis: J2 isn’t used to sleeping on his own in such a large room, so, if we upgrade J3 to the Big Boy room, J2 won’t be lonely and will hopefully stay in bed.
J2 keeps sneaking into our room and popping up by the bed, it’s super creepy y’all!
Method: I moved the crib to J2’s room yesterday morning so he had all day to get used to it, and to learn the ‘no climbing in’ rule.
At bedtime he laid down on his bed while I fed J3 and sang Twinkle, Twinkle over and over and over again.
Twinkle, twinkle, little *snore*
Results: I would say that it was a success. He only got out of bed twice, which were the times that J3 was in our bedroom to feed.
Conclusion: If I stay in their room and feed J3, J2 should have a good night’s rest. We’ll try again tonight and I’ll post about it again tomorrow, although hopefully not at 5am.
