Hi Mommas


Firstly I'm not posting this in order to brag or rub it in - I sincerely just wanted to post a good news story and hopefully provide some encouragement.


My little guy is now nearly 15 months, and for most of his first year of life he woke every 1-2 hours.  It drove me crazy.


Well since he made it through his 12 month sleep regression, he has been sleeping much better.  Now he wakes "only" 3 times a night, which is a HUGE improvement for us compared with the 7 plus times he used to wake up.


Some nights he will actually sleep from, say 8.30 till 3.30 - this has never happened for us before.


We really have not done anything differently, I think it's just a maturity thing.


Anyway I'm sure there will be future bumps in the road, but it feels so much better that we are all getting better sleep.


When we were in the throes of his frequent wakings, people would tell me "it does get better" but I really wanted to hear first hand experience of "it" getting better.

40 y/o married Mama, 3 y/o DS, Angel Baby lost in Sep 2013, Angel Baby lost March 2014.

Thank you for sharing--it is definitely heartening to read stories from people who have come out (or are in the process of coming out) of the other side. So glad things are going better for you!

Yes - thank you for sharing! It's totally encouraging to hear that our little ones can learn to sleep better on their own, without any "intervention" on our part. Here's to you sleeping better/longer! I'll remember your story when I'm up at 3am;)

Happy first time mama - Rosa born 2/4/11!
