So the sleeping thing (with August) went great for 3 nights in a row. Sleeping in chunks of 6+ hours (one time - all night!), sleeping in his own crib & settling himself down if he woke up. I was ecstatic. After 7+ months of not sleeping more than a couple hours at a time, this was awesome.
But now the past two nights he's awakened within a couple hours (around 10;30 - just as I'm falling asleep) & it's harder to get him to go back to bed. Then he's up again around 2 or 2:30 - again hard to get him to go to sleep (in his crib) & then I usually end up sleeping with him. Which, when it's so chilly out, has additional benefits. He's a little heater! BUT - I would prefer to go back to the 3 GOOD nights of sleep.
I know this is a process, I know that we're heading in the right direction & I know it takes time. At least I also know that he is CAPABLE of sleeping all night.
