He sleeps!!!!

Only took 2 years!!! Those of you who know my struggle with tommy and sleep- its been along time coming. Last week DH decied Tommy needed to learn to sleep without mama. LOL. First night he read to him and he drank his milk, then into the crib he went. DH went in about 5 times in 35 mins before he was asleep. And he slept all night! The next night he went in 3 times over 30 mins. The next night he only went in to take the truck had- as that will keep him playing instead of sleeping. He has gotten up two mornings at 430 and I had no luck getting him back one of those times, but the next day DH got him back to sleep till 7! Naps with me, are a struggle but still he is getting himself to sleep. I always knew if he could put himself to sleep, he would stay asleep. So awesome to be sleeping 8 hours a night. But I wont lie, I truly miss my nightime snuggles with him. makes me a little sad. But just wanted to update!

I hate it when dads manage to step in and get instant results! My husband was just taking credit today for getting DS to sleep more than 4 hours at age 1.
Argh. How do they do it? We put in so much love and effort!!!
Sigh
But yay for you! You must feel like a new person!

I know right?! I hate that he "wins". But I think we are the nurturing ones. Dads become the boss.- so to speak. But yes its super nice. He still isnt listening to be i just keep DH on standby and grab him when its taking long

Congrats on the new baby I see!!!!
