We have 4 great sleepers in our house. Well, 6 if you count hubby and me. Sure, there is the occasional bad dream, fever, or ear ache that needs attention in the middle of the night. But for the most part, our kids go to bed each night at 8 and wake up each morning at 7.
All this sleep didn't come easy though. Just like everyone else, we had babies who were up every two hours all night long...until we taught them how to sleep through the night.
I just wrote an eHow article detailing the process that we used to do this. I'm sure it's not for everyone, just like co-sleeping wasn't for us. But if you're interested in helping your little one sleep better, then I encourage you to give our method a try. It worked great for us!
