Sleep Like a Baby

It has been the best past few nights ever. 

For the first time in sixteen months, Baby slept through the night.  Yes, the FIRST time in SIXTEEN MONTHS! 

If you recall, I wrote a blog post about the definition of sleeping through the night.  My Baby does not like sleep.  She hates it with a passion and fights it until she can fight no more.  She wakes up every few hours or so and fights going back to sleep.  She will yell and scream at the top of her little lungs. 

Sad to say, I did try the cry it out method.  After a week of my child screaming for hours on end, I gave that method up and figured she would learn how to sleep in her own time. 

We try to put her down around 7:30 or 8 pm then get up around 6:30 or 7 am.   In between those hours, she wakes up at least three times.  Which means Mommy wakes up at least three times.  Or she hits Husband to wake up.  That's beside the point.  The point is, she doesn't sleep through the night.    

Sixteen months after her birth, she is starting to figure things out.  Take that, Mr.Ferber. 

The first night, she slept from 11 pm until 5:30 am. 

The second night from 8:30 pm until 6:00 am. 

I'm in heaven.

  1. During the 16 months did you at least get to nap? That is wonderful to hear that you get sleep again. I know how much you love your sleep.
