A few weeks ago, we started to really implement a bedtime routing of bath, nurse, bed. We started this routine around 8 PM so that he was asleep and in bed before 9. This pushed his feeding time up to about 2:30 or 3, but that was fine.
About 2 weeks ago, I woke up at 4:45 AM and panicked - I hadn't heard from the Little Man in hours and he was asleep by 8:30 the night before. I quickly checked and of course he was breathing just fine - just sleeping away. he woke up about 15 minutes later to eat. This happened again the next night and I was thrilled. Night #3 came and he was back to his 3:30 wake time, so I figured those long nights were just a fluke! Night #4 came and he slept until 6AM!!! Ever since then, he has slept until 6 or 6:30 every morning and even once until 7AM!!!
We are so thrilled that our 12 week old is sleeping so well! If we could just get a solid nap schedule figured out - everything would be perfect! A full night's sleep sure makes for 2 happy Moms! It has also been nice to get him down to bed before 9 because then we have some time together to just hang out or get things done around the house!
