It’s been a tough 12 weeks.  Miller is just not a good sleeper – whether it is his abbreviated 25 minute version of naps during the day or multiple wakings at night, I have felt like I was going to go stark raving mad!  During the day, every time I would get him down I would breathe a huge sigh of relief, only to hear his cries again in 20 to 25 minutes.  I told myself I could deal with the lack of daytime naps though if only he would sleep at night!  I think he heard me on that one and decided he would see just how much I can take!  For the last 12 weeks, on average, he is awake 4 to 5 times during the night – just enough so that I never get into a deep, restful sleep!  I have tried everything, co-sleeping, letting him cry it out, picking him up and rocking him back to sleep but nothing seems to work.

Until last night.  Little man slept for two 6 hour periods, only waking up to sweetly nurse in between.  It was wonderful!  I feel like a new woman today!  So what did I do to get this wonderful night of sleep?  I have no idea! L I’ve been trying so many different things that I’m not sure what worked!  Whatever it was though, I need to figure it out so I can do it again.  And again, and again, and again!  Because I can rock at this momma thing if I get to sleep like that at night.  I have the energy to play with him today, I have the patience to deal with his short naps and, hey, I might even be awake enough to get Jackson to school on time this morning!  Nice!

Oh do I feel for you Jeannette! Missing your sleep does make it hard to be the mom you need to be. Once you get a little bit of that sleep, you feel like a new woman! Your little one sounds just like my youngest daughter. She would take these short naps during the day and wake up 4 and 5 times a night. Now that I look back, I think she either had reflux or digestive issues. But she moved to short naps during the day and sleeping through the night at about 9 months. I could take the short daytime naps for the sleep at night! Love the pic! They are so precious! Hope he lets you move to more night time sleep whatever it is you did!
