I hope he slows down soon- I am so tired. It has impacted every area of my life.
I am committed to CLW because of his allergies- I know it is best for him but it is doing me in. I don't get prolactin relaxation because he's a "gnawer/chewer" and I get random chomps so nursing puts me on adrenilin.

DS went ALMOST 5 HOURS!!! Now, has totally screwed with *my* sleep (if I get over 4 hours in a row then I have a really hard time falling back to sleep) but it's getting better.
At 3 he was doing the every 1-2 hours thing.
Then he went to 2-3 around 3.5.
Now he is going 3-4 for his first big sleep consistently. And then 2-3 for the rest.
I CAN SEE THE LIGHT!!!!
I had partially decided to myself that if he wasn't going 5 hours by 4 years I would consider doing "something." With almost 3 months to go, I think we just might make it
