Peer Pressure...

Well, I finally gave in. I created a blog! I actually have Dr. Weissbluth and his book, Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child, to thank for giving me the time to blog.

I purchased this book on Saturday out of pure exhaustion! My little man has been sleeping for 1 1/2 hours - 2 hours max and then waking up to nurse. Well, I read this book all day Saturday and followed the napping schedule with J. That night he went to bed around 8:45pm and slept until 5:45 am. He only woke up once at 1:11am and cried for about 7 minutes before falling back to sleep. It was hard not to go to him while he was crying, but I managed...well, ok, Hubby had to hold me down. The next night, he went to sleep at 9:00pm and slept straight through till 6:00am no middle of the night crying! He's been sleeping well ever since. He takes two naps during the day and goes to bed without fussing. During his wakeful periods, he is a happy baby who loves to play and hasn't turned into a Fussy Bear, yet! Yeah!!!! Mommy won the "Battle of the Sleepless Nights". It's about time I figure this whole parenting thing out! Let's see what my little guy throws at me next!

  1. Yay! I'm so proud of you! I understand about the holding you down thing with hubby....mine had to do the same thing to me when L cried in the middle of the night for a few minutes. It's worked for all three of mine... :)
