Sorry, Henry!

Remember that time I called Henry the worst sleeper EVER? Well, I’d like to retract that statement and apologize to my little, because guess who SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT last night?

Yup! You guessed it 🙂

My pumpkin Henry slept from 7:30pm until 7am! He woke up once around 4/430, but by the time Mark got a bottle ready, Henry was already sleeping again.

Henry must have known that I had hit my breaking point. I was literally ready to crawl under a rock and stay there for the next two years. 

Hopefully the trend continues!

As a side, little man is also napping like a champ. He’s turned his 30-40 minute naps into legit 1.5-3 hour naps! Such a good boy (and yes, seemingly a great sleeper all of a sudden).

Cheers to Henry pie!

One Proud (& Engorged) Momma

Tonight when I went to put little Henry pie to bed, he was wide awake. I nursed, potched and rocked him to no avail. 

After maybe 30-40 minutes of the “please go the heck to sleep” dance, I gave up.

Okay, Henry. Momma’s just going to put you down in your crib and take a little break. You be good.

I fully anticipated my little guy to throw a big fit and demand I bounce faster, potch harder. But I walked out of the room anyway.

I quickly grabbed the monitor to watch. He looked right, he looked left. He chatted. He moved his feet around. He wiggled in the swaddle. Then, maybe 15 or so minutes later, it happened. He turned his head to the side and closed his eyes. Then, he fell asleep!!!!

No potch necessary. Not crying at all.

This is a big step, because if Henry hasn’t fallen asleep nursing, he is usually screaming the moment I even consider putting him down. He can sense these things.

So, after falling asleep around 830, the little dude slept until 215/230ish! I don’t know why my boobs can’t handle it, because I’ve gone this long before, but holy crap. I think I’m about to pump a gallon of milk (Mark takes the first night feeding while I pump).

Anyway, the moral of the story is that my little man is amazing!! Go Henry! Keep up the good work 🙂

Proud Moment!!

Guys, Henry just slept from 730-300!!!! That’s the longest stretch he’s done since week 3 or so! 

It’s funny because I was just telling Mark that I felt like if he stayed consistent with his two wake ups, we could likely try to drop the first, because he doesn’t typically eat much at that time.

Apparently Henry got the memo!!

Fingers crossed that he does it again 💛
