I can’t believe I am posting about this because I am probably jinxing everything ever, but, I think Ezri is getting the hang of this sleeping thing, FINALLY! Ah. I am honestly scared to go on, but I’ve got to get it out. Ezri has been sleeping fairly well for the past few weeks. I’m talking 6-9 hour stretches and then back down for another 2-3 hours before she is up for the day. Honestly, only 1 night feeding!!! We have had a few bad nights in the past few weeks too, but the good nights are creeping into the majority! Ahh.
In fact, last night she broke her longest stretch record. She slept for 9 hours, 43 minutes!!! Omg I was so shocked. My breasts were very very full as they are not used to going so long in between feelings. Oh well, I am definitely not complaining!!
Something else that seems to have changed is she is okay with Peter trying to settle her at night again. For the past 6+ months, I have been the only one who has been able to calm her down. She would scream and get even more upset if Peter tried. It was sad for him and hard on me. But hopefully that is changing now. I guess because I’ve gone back to work and she goes down for a nap with my Mom and Peter, she is getting used to not having me around. That’s a very good thing. She shouldn’t be so dependant on only me.
Last week, I was with her for almost 2 hours one night trying to put her down to sleep in her crib. She would fall asleep in my arms, so I would wait a bit and then try to lay her down and she would wake up and wail. After 4 attempted tries, I just had to leave the room and hope she would fall asleep. Peter went in after 15 minutes of crying and was able to calm her down and get her asleep and then lay her down without waking up. Took him about 10 minutes. It was a miracle!!
Now my only wish is that Lissy’s son Owen will start sleeping better for her as well! Our kids are old enough to do it, so let’s get it done!!!
Please please please don’t let this post jinx what good things are happening for Ezri’s sleep!!
