sleeping better

good news!...our precious little boy seems to be learning to sleep better! this past week has been his best for both sleeping at night and taking naps. we put him to bed between 7:30-8pm, feed him between 10-11 (dream feed...he sleeps through it) and he sleeps until anywhere between 4:30-5:45am. then we feed him again and he goes back to sleeps until about 7:30. we used to have to get up 2-4 times a night to give him his pacifier and help him get back to sleep. this week, i've only had to get up 1 time! way to go j-hub!! and his napping is better than ever. i mentioned in a previous post that he'd only sleep for about 40 minutes then be awake, but still tired and would only continue sleeping if i held him. well, since wednesday afternoon, he's been taking 2 hours naps. i have still had to go in a number of times to give him his pacifier and pat his back, but he's stayed in his crib! i feel like i can get more done around the house and also just have a break. another benefit is that jackson's happier because he's sleeping better. needless to say, mommy's happier too!
