In my last post I discussed Elliott's sleep issues. We took the advice of many of our friends and family, and we seem to be finding success.
We now have a pre-bed routine. It sometimes includes a bath (other times he gets a bath before a nap...either way: bath = sleep). It always includes a story, then a bottle with just a nightlight on. The last three nights he has fallen asleep pretty easily that way. Tonight, though, since I was the one putting him to bed, he wasn't happy until he nursed again. He's asleep now, but he's stirring...
Saturday into Sunday he slept 9:45p to 7:40a, and Sunday into today he slept 9:00p to 6:30a. It's awesome and I hope it lasts for a little while. :)
