I am so very lucky that my kids are such good sleepers. I feel so sorry for the parents that have babies over 2 or 3 months old that are still waking up during the night. I really do. My heart goes out to you all, because honestly, I don’t know how you do it. I don’t function well if I don’t get sleep.
Rylie started sleeping through the night at a month old. She was going from like 10-6 with no problems. Once she started daycare, she went to bed between 7 and 8 and we had to wake her up around 7 every morning. Bryce took a little longer to get into that routine, but only a couple of weeks. Now they both are in bed by 8 (sometimes Rylie is up a little later), and we wake Bryce up at 6 and Rylie up at 6:30. On the weekends they sleep until 7:30 or so, usually.
Last night was Bryce’s first full night without the swaddle. He has been fighting it lately and usually wakes up with at least one arm out of it. We decided to try him without it last night and he did really well. Apparently (and I say “apparently” since I slept through it) he started fussing around midnight and Brian got up and gave him his paci and he went right back to sleep. So hopefully that is the end of the swaddle. Once we are sure he is done with the swaddle, the paci goes next!
