We did it again last night and below is the summary for the night :
Night 3 : 8.30pm, feed Hariz with mashed potato for dinner. Usually he will get sleepy and yawn few times while we feed him and gosok-gosok mata. but only at 9.30pm I carry him to our room and bf him before put him to sleep in his cot. At 10pm, he wakes up and cries for 10minutes and stop. I went up to check on him and he was fast asleep. I went back downstair and he cries again at 10.15pm. It was brief. Tak sampai 1 minute he stops. I went to check on him again. He's asleep. I think it went on for 2-3 cries until he finally settled. I was so overjoyed that this method really works! I should have done it sooner! :P
I think he did wake up again around 2 or 3am but he settled himself down in less than 20 seconds. Of course everytime he cries and went back to sleep, I will go and check on him to make sure he is ok.
Finally he wakes up at 5am and I pick him up and nurse him. Kesian sayang mama lapar kot. 8 hours of sleep mesti dia lapar kan? (that's what I thought). He bf for 10 minutes and went back to sleep and wakes up at 7.30am.
I must say I never feel so fresh and energized when I wake up. I know this method may sound cruel to your baby but mummy needs a good rest so I could work , be healthy to care for my family and keep my insanity :)
