  • You can't make sure it happens again, but, keep doing what you are doing and maybe he will get into that routine for a while .Just don't change anything and see how that goes. change and a baby/child do not mix well at all. :)

  • hahaha Im sorry for laughing . . . Its just that my DD has only slept for 12 hours straight 4 or 5 times, and she is 14 months. I wish I knew what made her do that, but I can't quite put my finger on it . . . . if you figure it out, let me know :~)

  • Just keep doing what you do every day. He will either stick to this new schedule or he won't. Babies are very unpredictable - once you think you've got his schedule down to a T, he goes and changes (I know because I have a 10 month old). Just keep trying...

  • do the same thing, wait for that cry before getting him. You did it right, just keep doing it! good luck!

  • You can't make it happen again. Not anymore than you made it happen the first time. Just keep doing what you are doing and he'll get there.

    And congrats! Mine didn't do that until 10 months old! She did it once and then didn't do it again for 2 more (long) months.
