Sleep anyone?

I would love to sit here and type to you and say right now both children are sound asleep and will be until 8 am tomorrow but no that would be lie. Rose is snoring happily and will most likely stay asleep until around 3 am where she will get up wonder into our room and need to be sent back to bed. Lily we will see more often then that. Its 10:25 pm and we are on our second pass off. I have not had a moment to myself for a very long time. So I am asking do you have book that worked for you or didn't work but you think may work for us. Then leave a note about the book or better yet pack up the book and send it to us and well cover the charge of the postage. I promise to mail it back to you after I have read it and given it a go. I am willing to go so far as to say perhaps the whole family needs to go organic and sleep under the full moon! I'm not even kidding. I love back to the earth stuff! Cloth diapers, baby wearing, gardening for your food, I just wish I could come up with a way to get the girls to sleep without having them cry for hours on end.

I've heard really good things about the book "The No Cry Sleep Solution". It was written by Elizabeth Pantley and Dr Sears.

I'm the wrong person to ask about sleep advice though, since my nearly 4 year old still sleeps next to me at night. My kids also all night nursed until they weaned (it was really rough toward the end!) between 27-32 months. Sleep deprivation was a bit of an understatement ;0p

Good luck with finding a way to get better sleep at night for all of you~

I'd go with the heaviest, largest one you can find -- afterall, the bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Sorry I can't offer any real advice.
