From our big plane trip
Zack went down last night in minutes, with no fuss at all. I put him to bed, he smiled at me, and I closed the door. I heard nothing! I am so, so proud of him!
I did the scheduled awakenings and they went perfectly. I woke him at 10, 1, and 4, and each time he went back down with minimal fuss and it took mere minutes. Good thing Jeff was awake for the 1:00 a.m. feeding, because I slept through my alarm. So he saved the day and got me up.
Now it's my time to get ready for work, and I am doing it without also wrangling Zack, because he is blissfully asleep, most likely until 6:30 at the earliest.
I am so, so happy! I had all kinds of mixed feelings about sleep training, but now that we're on this side of it, I think it's the best thing since babies were invented. Doing this has also given me more confidence that Jeff and I will be able to handle all kinds of difficult parenting issues. I know we're not done with bumpy nights, but wow, what a lot of progress, all over one weekend. Jeff and I both slept in our bed last night and just kept the monitor on. I slept sooooo well! In my bed. With my husband! Hooray!
