So proud!

DS just slept from 8:30pm5am!!! 8 1/2 hours of sleep!! So proud of him. We also transitioned DS to his crib a week ago while he was going through sleep regression as we figured what did we have to lose and it was a very smoothe transition. So proud of my big boy!! Only downfall....now it's 5am and he is WIDE awake!

  • Try keeping the lights off during MOTN feedings. Don't make eye contact, don't speak, and try not to make noise. This will let him know that it is still time for sleep and he shouldn't wake for the day at 5am.

    I do this with my baby. She sleeps from ~7pm 'til ~5am consistently before she wakes for her one MOTN feeding. I unswaddle her, change her diaper, feed her, re-swaddle, and back to the crib all in the dark and silence. She goes instantly back to sleep and wakes for the day at ~9am. It is awesome to get this much sleep.

    ETA: She used to wake 3-4 times for MOTN feedings, but within 2 weeks of doing this, she weaned herself down to the one at 5am. I wasn't expecting her to do this, but it certainly was a welcomed surprise!
    I guess being awake with no lights on is just too boring :P

  • Great news!!!!

    We also moved LO last week. After a rough first few nights (which I think was just a phase - not b/c of the crib) she's also been doing great. 4 nights in a row of an 8-9 hour stretch before waking up around 5:30 to eat. I feel particularly amazing today b/c last night I also slept from 10-5:30 and did not wake up once.

    Here's hoping this sticks for both of us :)Go LO's.

    This is also interesting to me b/c our LO's are only two days apart.
