I didn't want to ferberize him. He's always been a good sleeper, but as of late he had been taking a long time to fall asleep so I would find myself rocking him for about 1 hour. Then, he would wake up several times (3-4) during the night. So, reluctantly, I gave in.
The first night I checked on him about 4 or 5 times as he cried and cried.... but he was asleep in about 30 minutes. He woke up once at 4am to nurse, and slept till 8.
Last night (2nd night), I nursed him and put him in the crib awake.... he turned over and went to sleep. Not a peep. He woke up once to nurse at 5am, then slept till 7:15.
Best sleep I've gotten in a long time!
Lets hope this continues, but I'm so unbelievably surprised!
