I’m not sure why it took me so long to write this review. I think it’s because I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop, but it NEVER did. I called Pam when Cooper was nearly three months old. It was clear to me then that I just wasn’t sure what to do next for my little one’s sleep as all the “old tricks” weren’t working anymore and both of us were getting more and more tired. I won’t say that our experience was always easy, because it wasn’t, but it worked. His night sleep was great from night one. He started sleeping through with one night feed immediately, and by 5.5 months had dropped the night feeding on his own. However, the little guy didn’t want to make it too easy, so he fought his naps pretty hard for a while. He may be some sort of record-holder, but I’m sure a few more are up there with him.
The thing is we completed our little one’s sleep learning when he was four-months old. Has there been some ups and downs? Sure. Was it always easy? No. Is he an AMAZING sleeper? Absolutely. He’s not just an amazing sleeper “some of the time” he is an amazing sleeper all of the time. He sleeps through sickness (more than I sleep when he’s sick), teething and believe it or not, the fire alarm in his room (yes I set it off once after he was asleep. The thing that amazes me most is that even when he has little blips (because who doesn’t?) He always gets back on track easily due to his strong sleep skills. I think I have finally come to accept this. Sophie and Pam always told me he’d be fine and get back on track, but now I really, truly believe it. In addition, since day one of daycare even he has napped at least 2.5 hours every day. He still goes to bed before the other kiddos because he always sleeps the longest so needs more time!
This is a little boy who loves his bed. So much so that he learned the word “bed” shortly after he turned a year. When we say “time for bath and bed” he actually crawls his little bum full-speed to his bedroom looking for his nighttime penguin buddy (most of the time)! He is such a happy, well-rested little guy, and that makes my heart so incredibly happy.
