No, I am not talking about my 3 week old or myself for that matter. I am talking about my two year old son, Brady.
This past weekend, he had a fever on Friday and Saturday nights, and would wake up crying and sweating about 5 or so times during the night. He was fine in the morning, but after his nap, he was feverish and lethargic - I think it is from his two year molars trying to grown in. So, one of the nights, after I finished feeding the baby, Brady started to cry and then I went in with him for a few minutes - to calm him down, give him a drink of water and get him settled in bed again. This was pretty bad those first two nights. Sunday was a little better. He would wake up, but we did not have to take him out of his crib, he settled down while in his crib and he was not sweating so much.
Then, it happened! Last night, he slept through the entire night again! PTL!!! I was very excited about that, especially since he has been sleeping at least 11 hours each night since 15 weeks old! I did not want this waking up in the night to become a habit, and thank the Lord, it has not.
So, now we will wait and see when our precious little baby will extend his sleep during the night. He has done a 6 hour stretch once, but he has mainly been consistent with a four hour stretch at night.
Speaking of the baby, it is time to go and feed him!
