Owen is a pretty good sleeper, for awhile now he's only been getting up 2 times a night. I've read a few articles that say once a baby weighs 12 lbs and at 3 months they no longer have the physical need to wake up and eat in the middle of the night. We'll Owen was 14 lbs at his 2 month doctors appointment, so I figure we can at least cut out one of the feedings. A few nights ago, I started giving Owen pep talks saying you can sleep longer you can cut out the midnight feeding and just wake up around 3. That night he didn't wake up tell 3:45. Yea I slept. The next night I gave him the same Pep talk and he slept tell 3:30. I was excited it worked I was only feeding him once a night.
Then we had a relapse. He woke up at 1 and around 4, the rest of the night I lay there listing to him moan and groan. Ahhh No sleep. Last night I gave him his pep talk again and he slept tell 4!! Since he starts crying and acting tired at about 7 and I give in at 7:30 and let him go to sleep that like 8 and a half hours of sleep for him straight. To bad I can't get him to stay up an hour later so I can get more sleep. Oh well he's usually pretty good about going back to sleep and if he doesn't I put him in his swing and I go back to bed.
