Feb 08, 2012 1 Hour I have to congratulate my son for sleeping so well these past few days. He has only been waking up once per night! This is such a vast improvement from waking up about 4x per night…that’s about every 2 hours. Now we just need to kick our son’s 1 hour play time habit at 3am. For some strange reason, this kid of ours is so wide awake, and ready to party. He looks at everything from the pictures high up on the wall to the night lights that are by our feet. For those that have any advice on getting our child back to bed quickly, please share.
