Yes I have great little sleepers.
After going through hell with my first, not sleeping anymore than 20-40 mins at a time during the day. I decided when my second, (well second and third as it turned out) came along I thought there is no way I am going through that again.
I know it is early days yet, but I have twins who are only 5 weeks old and I would have a other set of them anyday. They are so much easier than my first one. They are actually 13 weeks old (born 8 weeks early) and I have had them home since early Dec.
Now, I don't know if it comes down to more experience the second time round, or learning by your mistakes, or knowing what NOT to do, or maybe even just having a good babe, but so far it has been absolutely easy.
I suppose not everyones babe is going to react to the same thing, but the best advice I could give anyone especially those who are still pregnant is, get them into a routine early, don't fuss around and handle them too much, (which is easier said then done when everyone wants a cuddle), and DON"T rock them to sleep.
Put them into their cot awake from day 1 and let them settle themselves off to sleep. They can do it if trained early enough, because they don't know any better. I know that sounds hard, and that you want to cuddle them all day long, which is what I did with my first, but It will make your life so much easier if you do.
Also you shouldn't use things that are going to be used for sleep association, like rocking to sleep, being feed to sleep, music, dummies, (I do use dummies though) as they get use to them and then can't go to sleep with out them.
My boys are young and are good at the moment and hoping to keep it that way, I will be back if all hell breaks loose as they get older. :~
Now those older kids are another story, you poor buggers, I still remember those nights, and days of constant rocking or head down bum up in the cot trying not to move cause she will wake up again.
I did call tresillian once but did not like what they did, thats only me though and they are a wonderful org that help so many people, so nothing against them, it just didn't work for me.
I did try controlled crying, which nearly kills the mum I think, we feel so bad, again I did use dummy, also I think I just got more use to the tired signs and put her down before she got too over it.
I could go on and on about what we did or didn't do but would use up this whole site, it does take a long time to reastablish their sleep but it does work in the end. Just persevere, easy to say as you rip your hair out. >:-< I remember I use to go out most days, as I knew she would sleep in the car, or pram and was easier than having her scream at home.
I don't know if i have helped at all, if I remember anymore things I return.
I gotto go feed two hungry boys.
