Anyone have "sleep suit" weaning success stories to share? My girl (6 mo) seemed to not need it anymore, and also started rolling a lot in the crib so I went cold turkey Friday night and took the suit out of the nighttime routine. She threw a fit upon going to sleep and woke up about 2 more times in the night (not including her eating time) to scream about it. The next day and night we tried the sleep sack to ease the transition- but both days had short naps and terrible nights. It's certainly possible that something else is causing the bad nights, but it seems to me the suit is the thing.... should I keep with the weaning or give her back the suit if it isn't hurting anything...?

Hi Ladies- What's the best solution when the 2/3/4 nap schedule gets derailed? I introduced it yesterday to my short napping 5.5 mo old and it worked like a charm- (omg!)  but then we had a terrible night of sleep, and her first nap today was short again.

When the first nap falls short do you abandon the schedule and nap as needed and try again tomorrow- or keep them awake until the next nap time? Or something in between?

So, does it not count as "going to sleep on her own" if my4.5 mo old can fall asleep unattended but only with a pacifier? She will usually coo and fake cry for about 20-30 mins but will eventually knock off. She's in a crib with the magic Merlin suit, as we are swaddle weaning.

She's a chronic cat napper (30mins on the dot) so I am trying to figure out if weaning from the paci might do her naps some good. She usually holds onto it for the duration of the nap, so I don't think it is a problem that she drops it and wakes up. Night sleep is not a problem for us, it's extended period of day sleep...
