Andrew woke up Saturday night at 11:30 like normal, but we let him cry it out. He cried for an hour and settled back down and went to sleep. He slept until 5:00 when I handed him a sippy of water and he layed back down and slept until 7:30. It was wonderful to stay in bed until 7:30. The nights have been getting better since then. On Wednesday night he slept from 8pm to 6:15, which was the best he has done in months.
We have gone through this before, we have let him cry and he has slept good at night for a week afterwards. But it doesn't last and cycles into waking up at night. This time is different. We are not giving in. He has to learn to sleep continuously throughout the night. Because he isn't drinking milk, he is eating nonstop during the day. It has been so surprising to see how much this little boy can eat.
We love you very much. Mommy and Daddy are so glad you are sleeping and eating better. Please continue to sleep. You are so much happier. You are a good little boy, and we are so lucky to have you as a part of our family. Daddy has been bragging about you all week and even bought you a new truck to show how proud he is of you. We love watching you grow and try new things each day.
