Last night went even better than the first night … by a long shot!
Nicholas fell asleep nursing just before 9pm, so I put him in his crib, assuming he’d wake up at 1am or so. When he did finally start to fuss (which turned into cries), I was deep in sleep. I rolled over to check the clock while Patrick went to get him … I saw 55, so assumed something was sitting in front of the clock, blocking my view, and that it was probably 1:55am. I reached over and realized there was nothing blocking my view …. it was actually 5:58am!!!
Yes, you read that correctly … he slept for 9 hours in his own crib in his own room!
I’m not sure whether I should jump for joy or lament the loss.
He joined us in bed, nursed, and fell back asleep until 8am. Up for a few hours, and then Patrick put him down in the crib for a nap. It took a while, but he finally fell asleep on his own and slept for an hour. I’m taking it day by day, but this was certainly a couple of nice positives, after a few weeks of difficult nights!
