Slept through the night!

Well at 8 weeks old I think she just about slept through the night for the first time in her own crib.

Sunday night we started to transition her to her crib and honestly it was some of the worst nights we have had with her. Everytime she would be sound asleep (like head flopping off our arm) and as soon as we would lower her to her crib, she would start tossing and turning and wake up within 5-10 minutes. On top of that, even when she did get to sleep in her crib she was getting up every 2-3 hours.

Honestly I don’t think it had anything to do with the crib though. She had a bit o congestion this week which I’m sure didn’t help, but I really think it was because h wasn’t sleeping well during the day and therefor wasnt at night either.

Yesterday we had a pretty good nap schedule. She woke up around 6 am and after getting changed and eating fell asleep on my chest for about an hour and a half (7-8:30). Then we woke up and ate again and then took what I would consider a morning nap from 9:30-10:30 (I had to wake her up to go to our breastfeeding class).

At class she was still really fussy(not hungry, not dirty, and still crying) but once she was in her car seat at noon she slept until 2:30 while I ran some errands.

This afternoon was a bit long by 4 pm she was really upset so I went ahead and fed he again. By 5 pm she was down for another nap in the swing which lasted almost 2 hours! I thought for sure we wouldn’t get any sleep during the night after so much sleep during the day.

She had a bit of trouble going down last night. We got in our pajamas and ate until 9:30. It took a good 20 minutes (with several attempts) to get her to sleep in the crib.
After that though I didn’t hear a peep from her until 5:30 am! So from about 10 pm through 5:30 am which is 7 and a half hours! It was some amazing sleep!

She is actually already back asleep now after being changed and Eating! Our little jelly bean!
