Last night was the second night in a row that my son slept through the night! After a year of not getting hardly any sleep, it feels amazing! He went to bed at 7:30 pm and didn’t wake up until 5:30 am. Unfortunately, he didn’t go back to sleep and stayed awake until his morning nap.
He went down easily for his nap at 9:45. He seemed revved up around 9am still, so around 9:30 we sat on his big, comfy orange chair and read a book, nursed and then I put him down without a peep.
I really think that the night weaning is what has lead to this glorious time in our life. Thinking back to the last time period in which he slept longer I do recall he wasn’t nursing as much in the night because he was eating a lot more during the day.
Munchkin was depending on the night weaning, he wasn’t eating as much during the day as I’d like. He was eating a wide variety of food but lately it seemed like his portions were getting smaller and smaller. And no matter how hard I tried he just wouldn’t eat more.
However, yesterday I couldn’t believe how much he was eating. He definitely was tanking up on fuel to last him through the night. I’m hoping he has a hearty appetite again today so that we can all get another night of good sleep.
