[Max's favorite new spot: the couch]
Last night was night 3 of Dr. Gordon's sleep plan, which we are following in effort to prevent cavities down the line and get a better night's rest (after 15 months I suppose we could all use that!) So far Max is adjusting beautifully. We are in Phase 1 which means he has a short nursing session upon each wakening and then goes back down awake. So far each time he squirms a bit before settling down to sleep within a few seconds. Already on the 2nd and 3rd night he woke only twice instead of three times. Technically these are big changes in his routine but he is handling it so gracefully. Instead of moving into Phase 2 tonight, we are going to try shortening the nursing sessions even more. Then we will move into Phase 2 which is where you replace nursing with a short cuddling session. We are so proud of you little man!
