I've co-slept with DS since day one. Between the ages of 4 and 12 months, he woke very frequently, often every 1-2 hours. There were times when it was worse and some better times as well.<br><br>
Anyway, around when he turned 1, we started consistently getting longer stretches of sleep, 3-4 hours I'd say. I posted a similar thread at that time, hoping to give mamas in my situation some hope.<br><br>
Well, it keeps getting better! He's 13.5 months now, and the past week or two he's been sleeping up to 5 hours at a time, or more!! I'll usually join him in bed between 10 and 11. I might or might not nurse him at that time. Then, it seems like he doesn't wake to nurse until 4 or 5am!!! I've done nothing to encourage this, he's changing all on his own. He does sometimes wake and cry for a few seconds, but if I just play dead or say "it's your sleepy time" he will flop himself into a new position and go straight back to sleep <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
(BTW, in the very early morning he is starting to reposition himself onto me! It's usually cute and I enjoy the cuddles, but at some point last night I woke up with him sleeping on my neck, and I felt like I was slowly being strangled. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">)<br><br>
All this in spite of the fact that his second molar just popped through - it doesn't seem to have affected his sleep at all!!! I hear the canines are bad though...

That is great!!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
Yes we are working on canines right now, and the beginning of the week was HORRIBLE, up all night and up for good at 4:45... but then the top two canines poked through on Wed (i think?) and the rest of the week has been BETTER!! We even slept in until 7 am yesterday!! I have come to realize that my DS's sleep is almost directly related to teething... So we are one step closer to sleep now that all 4 molars are through and 2 canines! Only 2 more canines to go! wooo hooooo! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
