sleeping through the night 3

Ok, last post about sleeping.  Someone must be looking out for me because I have had 2 nights in a row with little to no problems getting the twins to sleep from 7:30-6:30 the next morning.  We did have an big issue with Thomas taking is afternoon nap, but finally he went down for about an hour.  We went out and  purchased 2 sleep sacks thanks to the suggestion of Sotorrific Twins' mom.  Hopefully this will help with naps and night time.  The twins went down for a nap this morning with just a little crying.  I never realized just how important schedules, routine, and consistency are.  I love that the kids are all sleeping so good.

Thanks Sotoriffic Twins and Goddess in Progress for the support and the suggestions!  Let's hope that this continues.



  1. One more night and I'll call it a pattern! :-)

    Yes, schedules and routines are total lifesavers. Sometimes you can stretch them, but if you're consistent with them the vast majority of the time, life is a whole lot smoother.

    And I'm a HUGE fan of sleep sacks. My two-year-olds still wear them for naps and bedtime! The times when Daniel threatens to skip his nap are the times he asks not to wear his sleep sack... now I know. :-)

  2. They didn't wake up at all?? That's so terrific! They were definitely ready for STTN :)
