Sleeping through the Night

 The past several weeks I have had intense headaches every day because of lack of sleep/interrupted sleep. Jackson was waking more and more frequently to nurse. He's been nursed on demand for the past 12+ months, typically every two to three hours. But after having headaches for weeks I decided something had to change. We decided to try to let him cry it out - after all he is a year old. Jenni had a super smooth transition to sleeping through the night. She cried for short bits for three nights and then she was a super sleeper. The method didn't work the second time around and Joshua Gabriel didn't sleep through the night until he was 18 months. I hoped to not go down that path again and thankfully we don't have to! I am happy to say that Jackson James is sleeping through the night! The first and only night Jackson cried for less than five minutes three different times. And just like that, he now sleeps for about 12 solid hours. I am thankful! (And rested, too!)
