I got to go to Birth Circle last night and Tom watched Tyler and put him to bed. Tom said it was his easiest bedtime ever. Tom gave him a bath starting around 7pm, gave him a bottle and he was off to sleep by 8:15pm. Lately Tyler has not been doing well at night - taking a long time to rock to sleep, and then waking again 10 minutes after putting him down. Usually because Tyler missed naps and/or got to bed too late. This causes fussiness in the evening and trouble falling asleep. This good bedtime last night was a breakthrough for all of us, and made me feel better about getting out and leaving Tyler with Tom. Tom does great, but if there is a chance of fussiness, it is hard to handle on your own!
And then Tyler did not wake until 6am! After a full feeding he went back to sleep until 11am! Wow. What a great sleeper.
