TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW!

That is the number of nights that Addison has slept through the night! 

Four days ago, I finally got up enough courage to let the girl cry it out at night...and it wasn't even that bad! 

The first night she woke up around 4:00 am and was crying in a half awake/half asleep state. It lasted maybe 45 minutes of off and on crying, and then she fell back asleep until 8:00. 

The next night was even better. She started whimpering around 3:00, but it only lasted around 10 minutes and she was out again. She slept until 8:00 again!

Since that night, she hasn't been waking up AT ALL in the night...it is SO heavenly! And--BONUS--she has been sleeping in later too! I have been reading a book that a friend let me borrow (thanks Heidi!):
I am loving it! I am definitely going to try to follow Dr. Weissbluth's sleep guide whenever I have my next baby...that way I hopefully I won't have to wait for 18 months to get my sanity back!

Thank you to those of you that commented on my last ranting post ...it helped me to be motivated enough to let her cry it out, and made me feel less guilty about it! :)

it's the best when they sleep all night. i made bella cry it out when she was 6 months old. the first 3 days were so hard but after that she has never had a problem.
