Re: How do I get ds to sleep longer?

I was getting frustrated with DD's sleep, to the point wher I was considering kicking her out of our room and into her own room, but yesterday someone posted this Kellymom link about nightwaking over at MDC. It's written about a 4-month-old, but I think the logic behind it carries over to any age, especially the "milestone" ages where they pick up new physical skills or have a new cognitive skill (i.e. separation anxiety and the development of sense of self around 9-10 months). I read this yesterday and it was like absolution - I was immediately back in zen mommy mode and completely okay with her nightwaking
