Im so proud! Brag Report!!

Ok! My son is 7wks 2days old! Well for the last 7wks Ive been sleepin on the couch with him, EVERY NIGHT! So u can imagine what its doing to my poor body! We tried the pack n play he didnt like it, i finally gave up on it n put it up..well yesterday he fell asleep on me so i figured what the heck ill put him n his crib n see wat he does (tried b4 he just woke up) what do u know he stayed asleep for about 45mins! So i say im'a start havin him nap n there during the day, so today was the 1st day, put him n there he went to sleep on his own! Slept for a hour! Woke up happy, and stayed awake long enough to eat 1oz n poop then got fussy so i layed him back down, BACK ASLEEP!! Praise the lord!! lol, so if he keeps this up during the day we will move the crib to our room (dont want him sleepn in it at night till we get a monitor) So yah im super excited that i might get to sleep n my bed with my hubby!!! Woot!! =D

  • Congrats! I remember when my DD started doing that around 10 wks. I WAS SO HAPPY! Suddenly she had a bedtime and I had time to do stuff. It was like a miracle. Keep up the good work!

  • its always a great thing when babies that have coslept are able to sleep on their own. ds however never slept with me, so i never had the trouble of him sleeping on his own. he did nap with me a few times, but i never made it a habit. anyways, enough about me, congrats!

  • I did the couch sleeping for 3 months with my first until I could figure our nursing laying down. With my second I had a nursing nest in our bed and it wasn't an issue.
