Are we almost sleeping through the night?


Last night Scott went to bed at 8pm (per the norm).

At 10:30 he woke up. I got out of bed and had made it to the kitchen to prepare a bottle when he stopped crying. Huh. Ok, back to bed!

At 1:30 he woke up. This time I got a bottle, and filled it with water and he fell back asleep! This is exciting! Back to bed.

At 3:30 he woke up. This time I managed to prepare a bottle. I think if I had just left him for another 30 seconds he would have gone back to bed. But since he's use to eating in the middle of the night, I thought, ok, I'll give you the bottle. By the way, we've completely weaned, and we're trying to cut out night bottles, so at this point, his bottles are half strength formula. We're working toward just water bottles in the middle of the night. So I gave him the bottle and it didn't actually put him back to sleep. So I just put him back in his crib. By the time I washed out the bottle, and climbed back in bed, he had basically stopped crying already and fallen asleep.

At 6am he woke up again. This time I made the bottle and brought him to bed with me. Yesterday he woke up for the day at 6am so I wanted him to be as comforted as possible and sleep longer.

At 8am we both got up for the day.

So, moral of the story, Scott may be getting close to sleeping through the night. AMAZING!

Now we just need to stop crying for 1 minute a few times a night, because that still wakes me up!
