@DaneLady:  Wishing you a good night’s sleep from here to eternity!  Keep up the good work lady! 

BTW – The part about your baby getting a cold, made me think of this thing I know about….Baby Comfy Nose….its a nose sucker that my co-workers swear by and you can get it at Walgreens!

That’s awesome!  Thank you for sharing your story 🙂  I should write one up for my 16 month old and others should too so that we can have comparisons for others to read.  Might make a good resource for new mamas.

@DaneLady:  Yikes! I feel for you! I think our DD’s are about the same age? My DD was born 5/4/13 and we are both pregnant again (I’m due 9/9) so we are pretty much at the same place in life. I really hope your DD continues to STTn. Pregnant ladies need sleep!

As far as sleep training goes we got very lucky. My DD started sleeping 8 hour stretches around 2 months and by 3.5 months she started doing a solid 12 hours and have not had any MOTN wake ups since. I am pretty sure I will not be so lucky with #2 but I can hope!! I think what helped us was swaddling tightly right from the start and reading “Happiest Baby on the Block” and “Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child” and following a lot of those principles.

@DaneLady:  We will be having our second baby 2 days after my son turns 18 months (or before) so I think I am pretty much screwed either way!  But if I live through it I will definitely post 🙂

@DaneLady:  Thank you!  Only 54 days left… but who is counting lol!  We decided to go team green this time around, but based on the huge differences between this pregnancy and the last, I have a strong Mommy intuition that it is a girl.  Of course, who knows!  I’m super pysched about them being close in age.  Just far enough apart where the oldest is a little self sufficient, but close enough to get all the diapers, bottles, etc done with and over in a few years (we’ll only be having two).  Best of luck with your pregnancy too!
