Sleep update — emphasis on "up"

So, we Ferberized — actually, Weissbluthed — the hell out of Isaac and it’s way better than it was but he still wakes up twice a night.

So be it. Weissbluth, as far as I can tell, is the most draconian of the bunch of sleep experts, the one who advocates just walking out the door at bedtime and not returning ’til the morning. But he’s also the one — the only one I can tell, at least — who says that, up until about nine months, some babies need a feed or two at night. Isaac, who will be seven months tomorrow, seems to be one of those babies.

So, he’s off the hook for a couple months. Or until I change my mind yet again.
