Our girls are over six weeks old and to be honest things have just been so busy we have sort of just forgotten about everything we read about sleep training pre-babies. We have also not really felt the urge to coerce our girls into some sort of military-like schedule so young. They also sleep really, really well at night in between feedings. The problem arises during the day... yes napping... they don't seem to be so solid at napping.
So now I am worrying a bit that they are fussy during the day because they are overtired but in order for them to not be overtired they need to not be fussy so that they actually sleep.. It's a vicious cycle.
I read Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Twins and I did retain some of the information and should likely crack it open again but when I actually have time to read these days I would really prefer to continue plowing through the Hunger Games Trilogy... I say plowing because I am not loving it but feel the need to keep reading to see if somewhere soon it gets better (I am nearing the end of the second book... if you're read them and think that the third one is awesome please let me know).
At this point I am really hoping that someone has some advice. Right now we are sitting here watching Modern Family with one baby in the bassinet behind us and one asleep in Andrew's arms... is that wrong? Part of me thinks that they should likely be in our room at this point, asleep in their bassinet. The other part that realizes there are so few hours of calm in our days says to just let this continue.
So please tell me... should we be sleep training them now?
