Just as a little note… my eleven week old son now sleeps through the night. Well, he’s done it for the last five nights. And it’s bittersweet. As much as it is heavenly to get nine hours of uninterrupted sleep, it is also sad that my baby boy doesn’t need me in the middle of the night to feed him, cuddle him, and rock him. He’s growing up so fast!

Yeah, that is really sweet.. nice for you! But let me warn you… this does not mean that you are done getting up at night with him. Sherise slept through the night from the time she was born, literally. Then at 5 months, she started waking a couple times at night. With teething, she has often had nights of waking every couple hours, and a few nights of waking every hour! Even now, she wakes once or twice in a 12 hour period, just to have a little milk a then right back to sleep. It depends on the baby… but this is fairly typical, I’ve read… they often sleep well the first few months, then need more food as they are getting older. So don’t get too comfortable… and enjoy all that sleep while you can!! 🙂
Wow, I am impressed with your little guy! Although it might not last forever, he might need his mommy again throughout the night 😉
