    Default Conflicting advice.

    If your aim is to get your cosleeping child to sleep for longer stretches at night, does it make more sense to; settle them only after they are awake (to give them opportunity to learn how to shift between sleep cycles)
    Or; to pat them back to sleep as soon as they stir to accustom their body to sleeping longer?

    I used to pat DS back to sleep as soon as he stirred as I found when he was awake it was harder to get him back to sleep! Now at 2 nothing wakes him up!

    I found this worked for ours too. Once he was fully awake we had no hope.

    He's a great sleeper at 4 and has been for years so I figure his body just worked it all out

    That's what I assumed, but Elizabeth Pantleys sleep plans includes "I will wait for true awake noises" when settling at night I guess ill ignore that part of the plan
