    ...a huge feat, but for me it is

    Landon is a terrible night sleeper, and we've been co-sleeping since he was about 5 weeks old. I usually can't get him to bed until between 11 and midnight and he wakes up about every 1-2 hours during the night (usually to eat). Any time I try to put him in his bassinet or crib he wakes up within 30 minutes. (I've been attempting to get through at least half the night without co sleeping).

    Well he's gotten pretty good at rolling over and during day time naps I put him on his stomach to sleep on my bed usually. He'll normally take about a 2-3 hour nap that way. So last night I was actually able to get him to bed at 9pm I cuddled with him for about an hour on the couch and then put him on his belly in his bassinet. He slept until midnight, woke up to eat, and then I put him back in it on his belly and he slept for another 3 hours First, he slept more than an hour to two which is an accomplishment in itself That coupled with 5 hours of having my bed to cuddle with DH and sleep comfortably was amazing

    I really hope this becomes a normal occurrence

    That is a huge feat!! Congrats Momma!!! And I'll pray for you that it's a normal occurance. We found out very early on that DD would much rather sleep on her belly... In fact I'm pretty sure that's why she rolled over so early because she hates sleeping on her back lol
