Sleeping through the night

For the past two weeks, Joshua has been sleeping through the night every night.

Sometimes he wakes up and cries for a short period of time (less than 30 seconds) and falls back asleep. But I don’t consider that truly waking up. It’s more of an interruption to his sleep.

He sleeps for a minimum of 7 hours straight, and once even reached 9 hours straight. He generally wakes up around 5 am for a feeding, then goes back to sleep for roughly 2 more hours.

In addition to sleeping through the night, he is also napping longer. If it’s very quiet at home, he would sometimes nap 1 1/2 hour in the morning, have a short 1/2 nap after lunch, then another 1 1/2 hour nap in the afternoon.

His new sleep pattern is making our lives so much easier. I no longer feel like a zombie stumbling around during the day. I am so grateful that he was so quick to learn to sleep through the night!
