Last night was the first night Calvin and Victor shared their room. I had no clue how it would go, but past experience told me Calvin wouldn’t do too poorly. When Victor first came onto the scene and was crying at night, it only woke Calvin up for the first two or three days. For the last four nights, I had been putting Victor down for the night in the guest room. It is between our room and the boys’ room, so I thought it would be a nice little transition for Calvin, with the crying noise a little closer, but not right beside him. It only woke Calvin up on the first night.
Last night, Victor woke up twice between 8:00 and 11:00 (once because he was apparently hungry, and the second time because his tummy was gurgly). Neither time Calvin woke up. Yes!
And then Victor went on to sleep for 5 more hours! Lately he has been doing 3 at the most at a time, so that was wonderful! And Calvin didn’t wake up that time either.
I know it has been only one night, so I can’t really call it a complete success yet, but I am pleased with the results so far. I feel like one reason Victor may have slept longer is that I got a prescription cream for his skin yesterday, so maybe he wasn’t waking up from itchiness? I don’t know if that was the reason he used to wake up, but it’s hard to know. He always went back to sleep really easily.
But anyways, hooray for them sharing so nicely, and hooray for us having a room to ourselves!
Currently the boys are napping peacefully.
