My one year old son does not sleep through the night. I know you kid slept through the night at 6 weeks, but mine doesn’t. His older brother didn’t sleep through the night until I stopped nursing around 18 months.
I’m still nursing the one year old and at night when everyone else is asleep is usually the only alone time I have with him. I love nursing him! I love our alone time together! I love all of the cute things he does when he is sleepy.
Last night he had a very large dinner. He ate a banana, an avocado, a cup of quinoa, beans, and corn. He went to sleep at 7:30 pm then woke up at 11:00 pm. I nursed him, we had our special quite time together and then he slept the rest of the night. Now this is unusual because he will normally sleeps from 4 to 6 hours.
Yes this is my life, I am almost always operating on just a little less sleep than optimal but I know if a few months when my son is no longer nursing I’ll miss that time together. In fact, I already miss it.
