We started sleep training because Miles went from sleeping 8-10 hour stretches to only 4 hour stretches. And lots of times 2 or less. This was a very different reason than we decided to sleep train Ella. He mainly falls asleep nursing but he would fall asleep in the swing too. Ella would only fall asleep on me. Ella was taking decent naps and his are crap. They are so short. Miles is not even 5 months and Ella was over 6 months when we started.
I made the same summary table as last time except I did add the column about what time I started nursing. He suggested it last time and I never added it.
Night 2: Miles was partially asleep on me but went into the crib awake. He cried for less than 3 minutes and was asleep in 18 minutes. His crying was right after I did a check! I only did 1 check. But then he woke up an hour later and then woke up again 2 hours later!
In general I feel like he actually took to going in the crib awake a lot more than Ella did. Sometimes I'm holding him and he's jerking towards the crib. He wants me to put him in. I meant to document more naps and nights but I didn't get to document as much as I did with Ella. I have some notes in my notebook but I"m not even typing it here. I know a few of the nights it took longer for him to fall asleep at night were days he was whining on me already.

9:15 PM (13th). Tired. In bed. Start new Netflix
2 am still up watching and finally get up to pump a little
Go back to watching. 3something Miles wakes. In with him until after 4. In bed. Not asleep yet. Ella falls out of bed.
Dave wakes from a dead sleep and said Ella fell out of bed. No idea how he heard that. I barely did and was awake. He ran in quicker then me! (HE did!) I comfort her. Almost asleep in 2 min. Then she says she wants me.
Fast forward an hour after and she's still awake.
I finally give up and go to my bed. 5:15. She comes and wakes me twice. Bandaid issues with bandaids she insists she needs. (She doesn't)
I'm finally asleep. And 2.5 hours later awake
I got Ella to school. She didn't want me to leave. I showed her teacher pictures from her race this weekend. Everyone wanted to see. The teacher seemed impressed and then Ella was more OK that I was leaving.
I ate cookies on the way home. Miles was good so I put him in the swing and put thing away and spent a few minutes cleaning. Then got him to nap but he would only nap while I was holding him so then that sucked. I would try to get him in the crib and that would fail.
I didn't get to eat my lunch until 4 PM. I did laundry and folded that before eating. I was heating my soup and he woke up. Of course. So then I nursed him back to sleep and got him to the crib and only had to reheat my food a little bit.
Ella was scared leaving school. She was afraid of the dark
I took longer to get Miles to sleep. Ella kept waking him up. She had to go potty but wouldn't get Daddy's help. She kept talking about how she wanted me and finally I go to put him in the crib and she is banging the door and it wakes him up.
We went to the old house to get more stuff and walk in and there's a cat in there!!! I already did a post about that.
