New Record

Little Edward shattered his sleep record last night. Woo Hoo! The longest he had slept at night was 6 hours and 45 minutes. I was very happy with this on the rare occasion it would happen. Last night (drum roll please) he slept for 9 hours and 11 minutes! He fell asleep at 8:20, woke up for a feeding at 5:45, and went back down from 6:00 until 8:00!
He has been doing pretty well the last week. We stopped swaddling him last Wednesday and I think he is now comfortable without it. He also sleeps on his stomach which helps him re-settle in the middle of the night. We have established a loose bedtime routine which I think has made the difference. The loose parts are the times: he eats sometime between 7 and 8, takes a bath, rocks for a few minutes and goes down nicely sometime after 8 but before 9.
He is such a sweet angel.
