sleeping through the night
Mary Lynn - posted on 10/29/2009
We started solids (veggies along with his cereal) this week, so I am not sure if that has been the trick, but it has been a long process of trying to get him to go to sleep on his own while he is still awake. He has gotten a lot better about going to sleep on his own. We've also introduced what they call a 'transitional object' His is a stuffed animal of a dog that he loves on when he goes to bed. He knows that when he sees the doggie, it means bedtime. I'll hear him wake up at night and make noise, but he can now go back to sleep on his own, which I think is key.
And who knows, maybe he is just getting to the point where he doesn't need the nighttime feedings anymore. Every child is different, so don't be discouraged when someone tells you that their 2 month old is sleeping through the night. =)
