Imagine my surprise when I heard Matthew stir on the monitor, rolled over to take a look to see that he was definitely getting up, and then looked at my watch and saw that it was 5:08! Holy sh*t – he slept through the night!!!!!!!
Ferber says that if you want their wake up time to be 7:00, that you should just get them up for the day if they get up after 5:00. So that is what I (sort of) did. He was awake – no question about that – so I put him in bed with me to do his morning nursing and he did that without dozing off. Then we got up at 5:42!
We are both noticeably tired, but also noticeably HAPPY 🙂 I think Matthew knows what he accomplished – he is in happy, proud baby mode! I am in happy, proud mama mode!
I know we’re not fully over the hump yet – that this will still take work – but for now, I am savoring this HUGE victory!!!!
