It's been a crazy week around here.
I've had my hands full with sleep training and a very active boy.
B brought his laptop over so I could get a bit of computer time while Peanut sleeps (or screams).
I miss the computer!
I need access during naps and such because I'm too busy while he's awake.
Sleep training has gone over pretty well.
Now is not probably a good time for me to write about it because
Peanut has been up crying for an hour but tonight was the first night without any kind of bottle.
He did sleep 8 straight hours before waking and now won't go back to sleep.
That being said, after all the crying the first night
he went to sleep after 30 minutes of crying the 2nd night (which was half the time) and
fell asleep after 2 very small bottles in less than 5 minutes each time.
I was shocked by how dramatic the difference was.
Shocked and relieved.
The third night was even better, with only one 3 oz bottle in the middle of the night,
the longest amount of crying lasted about 20 minutes.
Last night he barely cried at all before going to sleep (B didn't even need to check on him)
and slept for 8 hours but has now been crying for an hour.
I suppose that's to be expected for the first night without any bottle.
How long should he be able to sleep?
What time do your kids sleep from?
He's 10 1/2 months old, I want to have realistic expectations.
He keeps dozing off and then waking and crying.
I'm starting to get stressed about taking him back to the apartment.
My parents come home tomorrow but we'll be staying tomorrow night anyway.
Then we really have to get back home.
I'm wondering if I should write little notes to some of the neighbors?
Anyway, thank you for all the birthday wishes!
I had a fantastic birthday!
