My four month old wakes up at four AM every morning............the only good thing about this is that Sesame street comes on every day at this time and she seems to love elmo. I love my little pudge pudge, but am truly looking forward to the days when she sleeps thru the night till possibly six AM
Some nights my one year won't go back sleep, if i get too tired to sit in the rocking chair with her I lay down on the floor with her and make sure she's safe. More stimulation during the day helps her, she sleeps a lot a better when we get out and keep her busy.
My husband had to help me break of the habit of always running to pick up our oldest daughter when she cried as well. I do believe that he made me go sit outside one night on our front porch and wouldn't let me come inside until she cried herself to sleep :)
