Leap Year Miracle!

Happy Leap Year, everyone! It’s not very often we can say: today is February 29th! Well, every four years to be exact. Happy Birthday, to those celebrating!

As you know, Maxton has been a pretty bad sleeper for the past few months, almost four, actually. After being up every 1-2 hours (3 hours on a good night), we decided enough was enough.

We started sleep training last Friday, and it was hard. Incredibly hard. It was really emotional for me, and probably the most difficult thing I have ever had to do. Here is how our nights went:

Friday night: up 11 times

Saturday night: up 13 times (he was not impressed with me)

Sunday night: up 3 times (with a 6.5 hour stretch – at this point I was thrilled)

Monday night: up 2 times

Tuesday night: slept 10 hours straight, without waking!!! WOOHOO!!!

I couldn’t believe it when I woke up! He was up early, but he slept through the night. We are so elated and proud of our baby boy. Hopefully this continues, because it’s pretty fantastic!

  1. I’m so happy for you all! Sleep training sucks! I always wonder who is supposed to cry more, the parents or the babes…
