Hooray! Colt slept for over 5 hours straight last night. Probably just a fluke, but I'll take it. I've had a migraine since Sunday afternoon and I'm completely exhausted. With DS1 it took nearly 6 wks to sleep from 11 PM to 5 AM.

What is your experience with your LO and sleeping through the night?

Dorian is waking every 2-3 hours still. I am super exhausted. I am glad you got a good stretch of sleep!

Oh wow! That's awesome news that you were able to sleep such a long stretch! Sorry to hear about your migraine though I wish you didn't have to deal with those.

We are still not sleeping that great. He only sleeps for about 3 hours at a time. I'm exhausted.

Lol, I'm the only crazy that cried bc my baby slept longer he's now doing 3-6 hours at night. There are many variables that will wake him, for example how wet his diaper is. Melissa- can you nap with him during the day? I feel like that really helped me.

Wow Melissa, that is tough. Any reason for the schedule? Just waking For feedings? Are you able to pump and bottle feed him at night to help?

Dang Colt, WTG! Truely will stretch it to 3 1/2 hours once in awhile, but it's usually 3 hour stretches.

Wow, Leia, I'm jealous of your older one sleeping 11PM to 5AM by 6 weeks! What a dream!!! Oh God what I would have given for that. Kody still wakes sometimes 10 times a night. He'll be a year old in a month. It took Ethan until almost 4 years old to sleep through the night.

Wow Joy, I am blessed with a good sleeper in DS1. He was sleeping through the night (7pm - 6 am) by 6 mos and still does and nothing wakes him. I'm hoping DS2 is the same. I'm sorry you have such a rough time - 10 times a night!!! You truly deserve a medal. I'd be a zombie during the day. How do you cope?

Michael usualy goes to bed about 12p and gets up around 3-4 and at 7-8a to eat. I can't complain too much about that.

Leia, I'm not sure...honestly! lol. I guess somehow I string together enough sleep to be OK. Some nights he does better and only wakes maybe 5 times. Lately though with teething it's more like the 10 for the last several nights. I did it for a couple years with Ethan, and just about when he was sleeping through the night, along comes Kody! Hah! I will say my antidepressants have kept me sane during the whole thing.
