The Messy Mom: The Restless Night Syndrome.
We went through the same bedtime routine and Baby Z fell asleep after about an hour of "winding down". I was so excited when he woke up and I had realized that it had been 8 1/2 hours. However, after that he would not go back to sleep even though he was still tired. Later in the day we both took a nap in my bed which I am sure is a set back, this is what we are trying to get away from. Overall it was a successful night, I just want to work on getting 9 or more hours for baby Z and I really need to go to bed sooner myself.
