I'm not sure if it has to do with eating more solids now, but Beckett has been such a great sleeper the past few nights! I've been putting him to bed wide awake and it takes him about 10 minutes to put himself to sleep..... no tears so far. I couldn't be more relieved. The first few nights that we stopped swaddling he woke up 3-4 times. I usually fed him twice and let him put himself back to sleep the other times which usually took 3-5 minutes. The past 4 nights he has only woke up once the entire night. ONCE! I get 3-4 uninterrupted hours of sleep, feed him around 1 or 2, then I don't hear from him again until 6:30. I think he may be waking up to roll around and find his binky, but he must be going back to sleep right away because I don't hear a single peep. Between not being able to hear him and his preference for sleeping with his face straight down in the mattress, I'm a little bit of a nervous wreck and check on him several times.
When he was two months old I made the mistake of thinking that because he was sleeping through the night then, he would always sleep through the night! I was just that lucky and had an angel baby. WRONG. Babies go through phases, sleep regressions, teething, sickness, and all sorts of other things. I don't want to make that mistake again and I'm sure that when teething begins his sleeping may regress a little, but for now things are going great.
