It’s been about a month since I’ve been trying to help Logan (and I!!) get a little more sleep. I made another log last night and I’m happy to see that at least we have seen some improvement!
7:25 nurse, put in crib
11:11 Up, nurse (BUT it’s almost four hours since I first put him down. Yahoo! This is a GIANT step!)
11:25 Back to crib. Getting him back in his bed after the first wake up is a struggle…
11:30 Back in Logan’s room to give soother
11:43 Finally get him to fall asleep by leaning over crib and letting him hold my arm
12:42 Logan wakes again. Way too tired to keep this up all night so I brought him into my bed where he fell asleep instantly.
6:25 Up for the day
Total number of awakenings: 5
Longest sleep span: 4 hours
Total hours of sleep: 11
There are huge improvements here! Seeing a new “typical” night gives me hope of more sleep to come. In a month, Logan has decreased his number of night wakings from nine down to five. His longest sleep span has increased from three hours to four, and his total hours of nighttime sleep from nine up to eleven. Baby steps.
Daytime sleep has already improved dramatically. I am now getting Logan down for a couple naps a day, often ranging from one to two hours at a time.
Despite not always being so well rested, my sweet boy is always so happy!
