New mom mistake!

Well...Most of you know that Beckett has a had a hard time sleeping throught the night since about 13 weeks. At 8 weeks he was sleeping through the night and it stopped when I went back to work. Sometimes he was up 6-8 times from 12 a.m to 6 a.m. There were so many nights Bradley and I were both so frustrated. He would go to sleep and then wake up after 10 min. We would repeat this numerous times throughout the night. We just kept being thankful he was happy during the day. Finally after trying everything we could think of and asking advice from numerous people I listened to MommaSchelle (his aunt). She told me he was probably cold and I thought surely that's not it because that's too easy to fix. So after turning off the fan in his room, dressing him in his jammies and a sleepsack and covering his hands, Beckett is on his 5th night of sleeping through the night! Yipee!!!! I keep feeling guilty and asking myself why I didn't figure it out earlier when I was under covers and in flannel pj's when I slept in his room all those nights trying to get him to sleep for a longer than 10 mins at a time. Oh well! Here's a picture from the first morning after. I am sure he is saying "thank goodess that woman figured it out so I can finally get some good sleep!"

Being a mom is hard work! Especially when the little fella can't talk yet. I'm glad you figured this one out and everybody's sleeping now!
