Here's the deal people. Apparently Kase just has a harder time sleeping than some other babies. I've heard from lots of people, that it takes 3 days; maybe 1 week. Maybe this 1 week mark will be a turnaround?! I dunno.
On a huge positive note, I have not gotten out of my bed in 1 week (during the night I mean!). He's also making it til around 2 or 3 am; having a crying spell, then sleeping til morning. That in itself is a huge accomplishment; so, I bought myself a pair of shoes.
He HAS slept through the night twice this past week. APPARENTLY, he did again last night! I put apparently in all caps, for the following reasons:
The two nights he apparently slept through the night, were the 2 nights my husband was in charge of the monitor. When I've had the monitor, he had his crying spell (anywhere from 1-2 hours!) in the middle of the night. SOOOOOOOO.....
is Kase magically sleeping through the night, when he knows my husband is on duty?! That would totally be uncool. When Im on duty, I'm still losing sleep watching him on the video monitor, making sure he's not head banging on his crib.
Or (the more likely reason), is my husband leaving the volume off on the monitor?! He said last night he woke up a bunch of times and checked the monitor. Every time he woke up, he said Kase was sleeping, AND he checked the volume to make sure it was up a little.
I dont know what's going on. Maybe its just completely random that he's slept through the night those 2 times. Maybe a little sleeping fairy is coming in our room, and turning the monitor off so WE can sleep. Not sure.
(Forida tomorrow! whew hew!)
