Christina Ricci is opening up about her children’s sleep habits.
The Yellowjackets star, who is mom to Freddie, 8, and Cleo, 9 months, recently reflected on how different the two are when it comes to sleeping.
Speaking about her son’s sleep habits, “He screamed himself hoarse and started banging his head against the crib railing,” she told People of her experience sleep training Freddie—who she shares with ex-husband James Heerdegen—noting how much easier it was with her daughter.
“The fact that I can put her down in her crib and she just goes to sleep when my 8-year-old still sleeps with me is amazing.”
Ricci, who welcomed Cleo with husband Mark Hampton in Dec. 2021, added that after Freddie’s reaction to sleeping in a crib, she was curious to see how her daughter would take to it.
“But with Cleo, when we decided to try it and see how she would react to it, she just sort of whined for about seven minutes and then laid down, clutched her little unicorn and went to sleep,” she shared. “It was like she was ready and she wanted to do it, and it was right for her.”
