Our sweet little girl began sleeping 7 to 8 hours Monday night!!! She had an off-night Tuesday, but she's gotten back on track the last couple of nights! Hopefully we have consistency in our future!!
And, just to brag on the Lord for a sec: the book we're doing (Babywise) to get Anniston on a schedule says that most babies with this routine begin sleeping through the night at about 8 weeks. But, it says if the child has been hospitalized, it typically takes them a month or two longer. WELL, Anniston is 8 weeks!!
I just looked back at a verse I read yesterday, and I'm relating very well because I have had rest and much delight this week! It's Proverbs 29:17 "Discipline your child, and he will give you rest; he will give delight to your heart."
I know going by this book doesn't work for everyone (and we do only have a few nights under our belt, ha), but I'm thankful that this routine seems to fit our girl pretty well!
***One other thing: I feel like I should make a point to say that to follow the main principles of Babywise strictly (the book actually advises you to be somewhat flexible) could result in some negative repercussions. While I do believe this book helps a parent understand their child better and can lead to much success by means of a routine, I also think that it can be misinterpreted and taken to an extreme that is not
beneficial to a baby.***
