I know I''ve mentioned before that Tym is not a great sleeper...
Last summer before we headed out on vacation she was sleeping around 8 hours at a time without waking - we went away, and it never came back.
This year before we went away, she was doing a lot better than the previous months. We were finally settling into a good schedule - she was use to me at work. She was only waking up once or twice a night most times. And only waking up for long periods of time once or twice a week. So much better than the weeks/months before.
Then we go away again! (Think we would learn?)
Back to horrid sleeping... All week she has been awake from 2-5AM. Not playing so much as just awake, eating and snuggling trying to get back to sleep. She has downed at least 6oz of milk plus nursing each time.
Lastnight we reached a new level that we had yet to get to in the past 17 months - Tym fell asleep at night without me! When Meag brought up her sippy cup, I went to pee - usually Tym starts to whine when I leave and doesn''t want me to go: she was Ok with snuggling Meag drinking... So I took the oppurtunity and went and laid down in Tym''s room... Fully expecting to be called back within 30 minutes... I woke up at 6:40am!!! YAY!! Tym fell asleep Ok with snuggling Meag. It did take till 4:30, but she didn''t cry or fuss or anything! :)
Tonight we start a new routine... Meag tries to put her down for bed by herself... Which us luck! I am hoping that with her not nursing to sleep, maybe she will sleep better. Even though it seems like she''s really hungry at night.. We shall see!
