The first night was awesome. He slept from 7:30p-3:30a with only a little whine around 11:30 or so, then slept again from about 4a-6a. It was awesome.
Until that night.
And the night after that.
For the next few days, he woke up at 4am and STAYED AWAKE. Then it got better -- he'd wake up around 11 and then cry until about 12, and THEN wake up at 4 and stay awake. I was on about 4 hours sleep for about two or three days. The best day was Friday -- he was up at 3:45, I nursed him until about 5am, decided to bring him to the rocking chair and try to get him back to sleep, came out into the kitchen and ... stepped in dog shit. Brilliant. (The dog has been acting a little more jealous lately, especially now that I lie down with him on the guest bed in his room, which is too high for her to jump up on to.)
However, it has gotten better this week.After screaming until 1am on Super Bowl Sunday night, he's been sleeping longer and going back to sleep more easily. Last night he was up once during the night (which I slept through, so he must not have really meant it), woke up at 5, and went back to sleep until 7. I'd call that a success.
We're going to move the real crib out of our room this weekend -- we kept it just in case this plan completely backfired. I can't wait to be able to get out of bed ON MY SIDE!
Took a few pictures just to remember (for next time? yeah right!).
