We finally took the plunge and put Asher is in his own room this past weekend. I knew he would do well. He has been a good sleeper from day one. He was literally sleeping 5-6 hours at a time the night we came home from the hospital and was up to 8 hours just a couple of weeks after that.
I was most nervous about being so far away from him. His room is upstairs, while ours is on the first floor.
I put him down at 9 PM. I laid in bed and cried while I watched him on the little screen. But after a few minutes, I put on my big girl pants and dealt with it. He didn't wake up until 4 AM. And that was mainly due to a leaky diaper. But a kick butt monitor helped A LOT with that. If you are in the market for a really good video monitor, I HIGHLY recommend this one:
The Summer Infant Baby Touch Color Video Monitor (at least that is the title Babies "R" Us has given it)
The next night I put him down while he was still awake to see if he could put himself to sleep. He did!
Last night he fell asleep in my arms while I was reading to him after his bath. I put him down in his crib at 8:30 and had to wake him up to eat at 6 AM. After eating, he went right back to sleep and woke up at 7:15 - which was exactly when he needs to wake up to get dressed for Day School. I hope we are able to keep up this routine. He makes it so easy on us as parents. Wonder if he will be this easy when he is a teenager???
Check out this sweet little face. I look forward to getting up and going to get him every morning!
