Ferber Night Four

Bedtime: No crying!

Night Waking: 3 minutes!

This is better than I ever could have hoped. It seems like he's really learned how to put himself back to sleep and he's also eating better during the day - not as many of the 2-3oz "snack bottles" that he used to take. He's also doing it all without the help of the pacifier! It almost seems too good to be true. Charlie is just amazed at how quickly it's working. His night waking wasn't even at 2:30, it was at 11:30, so even after getting up to check on him I still got 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep!

I don't feel the mommy-guilt anymore, either. Based on his quick progress I'm looking at this as a nudge in the right direction rather than a complete unlearning of everything he ever knew to be true. I still believe that doing everything on demand is the best course of action for at least the first 6 months, but I'm glad he's learning how to sleep.


  1. Yeah! So happy for you. It's amazing how quick it works.

  2. YAY!! I think it's fantastic what you're doing! It only takes a few nights for them to get the hang of it!

  3. Awesome! Gav has slept 9 straight hours the past 2 nights...LOVE IT!

  4. WooHoo! Alright Baby C! That's so awesome that he's taking to sleeping at night.
