All night long!

After 4 1/2 months, Lyla finally made it through the night without waking up! She has always been a really light sleeper and woken up several times a night wanting to be comforted back to sleep. After my sister's advice and encouragement, I decided to let her cry each night for up to an hour every time she woke up. She never quite made it to an hour, but she came close a couple of times. It was so hard to listen to her cry, but I knew that was the only way to get her to sleep better. Each night got better and better and by the 5th night, she started sleeeping on her tummy and made it through with only one small wake up. By night 7 she slept perfectly all night long! It's such a relief to have your baby sleeping all's right up there with potty training!

  1. Yippee! I'm so glad for you!! I think sleeping is even a better feeling than potty training because now YOU are getting to sleep! Yay Lyla!
