Guess who's discovered sleep???

Yes your right that would be my daughter. YEAH!!!! Right after her six month mark things started improving. I've also been reading a book on healthy sleeping habits that I think has helped me to help her sleep better. I really have to watch her I need to get her into bed right when she starts feeling sleepy, then we won't have a fight(or as much of one!!). We also started putting her to bed earlier, I think by 8 she was overdone. And wouldn't you know it, she sleeps longer when you put her to bed earlier!!! Even her naps have been getting longer!! I'm so impressed. It's been a sudden and drastic change. She went from 2 feedings at night to one and the last 3 nights she's slept right through!! Tues night she slept 8 hours, wed 9.5, and last night 10.5 hours straight!! I'm sure there will still be nights she's up and maybe I'm getting excited prematurely but hey I got 7 straight hours of sleep last night, I'M EXCITED!!!
