When we started Phase I of Dr. Gordon's sleep plan, Max was waking up three times during the night. Phase I involves a short nursing before returning to sleep. He quickly went down to two night awakenings, and then one, so I decided the time was right to move into Phase II. Phase II is the cuddle only/zero milk phase. Last night when Max woke up and began tossing and turning and crying, I tried my usual routine to comfort him: rubbing his back and saying "Wait until morning". Then I relaized it was morning! Turns out he'd slept continuously from 12am to 6:45am. He hasn't done that in over a year. So we started our day, but held off on the milk until he had played for a little while. Didn't want to give the impression that crying would lead to milk! I'm so proud of him for handling this so well.
