this is day four of cry it out. The first nap we cried it our for he cried for 57 minutes, then I got him up. It’s difficult BC we aren’t shutting down our life completely, BC that isn’t feasible for us, and I do want to have Calvin be a bit flexible. Yesterday he took tula or car naps as we had to be out all day. We currently let him fuss/cry for thirty minutes the most. We kind of use our judgment here. Sometimes after ten or so, we can tell he’s trying to fall asleep but can’t BC he doesn’t have a pack, so we’ll go in and pop a paci in. He usually goes to sleep after that. The longest we go is 30 minutes, after that we go and paci him no matter what.
its tricky BC Calvin can out a paci in his mouth, but he can find them in the crib(and I’ve put about six in there.) occasionally he’ll happen upon one, and get it in, but it isn’t frequent enough that we can depend on it.
Bedtime he fussed maybe 10 minutes. First morning nap, has been anywhere from 3-15(after the first day) the other sometimes take 20-30 minutes.
his naps are still max 45 minutes, a d I wanted to ask some mommies out there, how long do your babies sleep at night? Calvin will sleep from 7-7, and I’m troubleshooting the short nap, and pretty much the only thing I can come up with is he’s getting too much night time sleep. Maybe he should only BC getting 10 hours? In which case, Joseph and I need to decide what is important to us, having adult time in the evening? Or breaks throughout the day.

7(ish, sometimes is 645) wake up and eat
745(ish sometimes 815) down for first nap.
9ish up from nap
