    Hello boot camp..writing this at 1115 pm when my 15 month old and I are the last ones awake in the house. Hr still nurses to sleep St night and through out the night whenever he wants. I finally got rid of a nap time nursing by strolling him to sleep the laying him in his crib…I know, new association…but I was desperate to dropthat nursing. My question is…is should I wean first even if it means introducing other sleep associations? Or should I sleep train and wean all at the same time. I’m ready to wean…the only reason I’m still nursing is BC it is the only way I get any sleep

    @ Joanna – glad you’re digging Sleep Training Boot Camp! Re: your schedule question – yes, this is tricky. You could try bumping up the time of the afternoon nap so that it’s a bit earlier than usual (would work with the earlier bedtime), too. Maybe do an earlier-than-usual lunch followed by a nap, and then (hopefully!) the nap will be long, allowing him to catch up on some missed sleep.

    Hope that’s helpful, Joanna! Thanks for commenting. 🙂

    Hi! Boot Camp…what a great idea! We are in round two of sleep training – the first round was at 5.5 months and it was a great success. Now with round two, we are coming out of a sleep regression and need to get back to better sleep. We are in an awful cycle of overtiredness – short naps and early wake ups are leading to short naps and early wake ups. I’ve got a schedule question. My 22 month old has been waking early in the morning for 8 weeks (445 to 515am). I’ve been compensating by offering an early bedtime. My scheduling qestion is – what time should I nap him when he wakes that early? (He’s exhausted by 9am and am scared to push him past 6 hours, but I don’t want to push his awake time before bed past 6 hours either. The math isn’t on our side here…) Thank you for your help!
