jonah is 9 months old today! hoorrayyy!! he's growing so fast and is such a joy...but not so much when he wakes up at 1:30 am and then 5:45 am! ahhhhh!! he goes to sleep fine between 7:30 and 9:00 (our schedule is always crazy so we don't have a great bedtime routine..this is probably a lot of our problem) but then he wakes up at least once every night.
what we've tried:
1. bottle - this works almost every time...he will drink one right at bedtime about 8-10 ounces, then when he wakes up he takes another 6-8 ounces!
2. let him cry...needless to say i can only handle this for so long before i go scoop him up
3. rocking him...he is a wiggle worm...he doesn't want to just sit and be rocked
4. go to bed with him in the guest room so we don't wake up jamie and noah (here's our other problem, noah won't stay in his crib or big boy bed, so he sleeps on his little couch next to our bed...another problem for another day)
the second wake up is the hardest...i just cannot be awake at 5:45 am! we like to sleep until around 7:30...
HELP! how do i get him on a better schedule!?!
