    Default Reid STTN!!!!!

    Like, for real STTN, none of that 5-6 hours crap that drs talk about. I put him down last night at 7:30. It's now 6 am, and he's still asleep! Of course, part of me was freaked and I had to go check and make sure he's still breathing (he is.) Also, my boobs are killing me. But OMG, SLEEP! I feel like a million bucks!

    WOW! I would have woken up a million times checking on her, lol! Did you put your hand on his chest to make you sure felt it move up and down?? hahaha ... I do that a lot. Anyway, hooray for sleep!!

    Whoohoo! Thats a lot of sleep, 10.5 hours sounds amazing! Let's hope he makes this a habit. Henry has slept 7 hours straight 3 times and it is nice to wake up refreshed.

    Haha Joan, the "hand on the chest" move is what I do too. Otherwise I don't trust my eyes. "Did I see his chest move...I think I did but...." LOL I must have needed the sleep because I went to sleep at 10 last night and didn't wake up until 5:45, so I was in full panic mode when I woke up, like "WHY DIDN'T HE WAKE UP???? IS HE BREATHING????? DID HE CRY AND I SLEPT THROUGH IT????" But he was fine. He woke up just a few minutes after I posted (like 6:10) and he was in a great mood. Huge smile when I walked in to get him. I think he needed the sleep as much as I did, because we were both positively bubbly this morning (we both usually wake up cranky because we're still tired. LOL) Oh I hope I hope I hope this turns into a habit. The idea of not getting up in the middle of the night every night multiple times makes me seriously giddy.

    It truly makes a huge difference when you sleep especially with back to work! Rylee has been giving us awesome stretches like 8-5am but then every third night or so it is back to a feed at 1 or 2am.

    I usually start my day at 5:30am and trying to get Henry in that habit for when I go back to work. Its the worst when he wakes up at 4am. Because he nurses for 30 minutes and I have to decide whether to go back to sleep or just stay up. I tried to stay up today but we were both too tired after breakfast so we went back to sleep until 7am.

    Who hoo for sleep!!!!!!! I so hope he makes this a habit for you.

    We are like Rylee...we get a good 3 nights or so of 7-8 hours of sleep and then a night or two of waking up once in the night to eat, then back to a few nights of 7-8 hours. And I agree the nights she goes 7-8 hours the next mornings are so much easier to handle less crankiness all around.

    Yay! That's a LONG stretch! Judah regularly does a 7-8 hour stretch but it's still tough because I'm getting interrupted sleep. Can't wait until he does 12 hours!

    So far so good! Since I posted that, I think he has gotten up once in the middle of the night. Otherwise, he has been sleeping from about 7:30 to about 5:30 when I actually go and wake him up and feed him. The reason I wake him up is because a couple of times I let him sleep and then he woke up at like 6 when I was trying to get a shower and feeding him and putting him back down for a little while threw off my schedule. So I'm finding that if I get up at 5:30 and nurse him, I can put him back down until around 7, which gives me some time to shower and get cleaned up and get my car packed up for the day and whatnot before I have to start getting the boys ready. I'm going to see how late he sleeps on his own this weekend though without me getting him up. If he would sleep until around 7 on his own without me nursing him and putting him back down, that would be better yet!

    Maybe you can trick him into it ... like if you slowly push that feeding back 15 min every few mornings??
