I'll probably jinx it

but Ronin is sleeping better at night now he cut his tooth. Friday and Saturday night I got minimum of 4 hours for the first stretch, but it may have been 5 hours for both. Tonight he went down around 8pm and is still asleep (unfortunatly he fell asleep before I got his warm pjs on and a nappy change) and is in his own room. It may have something to do with very short cat naps today, but maybe the every 2 hours of waking are over. I might be lucky enough to not have child health tell me I am doing it all wrong at his 12 month appt.

How much or how little a baby sleeps is NOT a reflection of parenting! Some babies just sleep more than others at night. I really do hope he's turning a corner soon!
Aiden did a 5 hours stretch last night which has me celebrating. I'm sure he'll be back to every 3 hours tonight. Lol

Yay for some extra sleep! Hope it sticks now that the tooth has made its way through.

It always irks me too when they ask if baby is sleeping through the night, or going to sleep on his own, at our appts. I know they are not judging, I guess, but it toally feels like it most of the time.

Yay for better sleep! How a baby sleeps shouldn't be of any concern to their doctor unless a parent asks for advice. At my 2 week appt my pedi suggested I start putting her down awake. He stressed it at every appt after that. It's the only thing he's mentioned that I've completely ignored. I don't even argue with him. I just let it roll off my back. Teagan will continue to nurse to sleep until she doesn't anymore and she will continue to wake up several times per night to nurse until she doesn't any more. Teething messes her up really badly too. She's a nightmare for a few nights before a new one pops through.

Yeah we went back to every 2-3 hourslast night, but it did get cold again so that may have been it. I'm at the point I barely notice waking upnow. I pretty much ignore some of what child health say anyway, they like to alarm parents quite often and first time Mums often get quite scared of them.
