The other day Oliver woke up. It was late for him, about 3 am. He has been sleeping through the night for the most part for about 5 months.
Usually he’ll go to sleep between 8 and 10 pm and wakes up around 5 am. Ocassionally he’ll wake up at 2:30 for a bottle but falls back asleep right away.
This time he didn’t want to go back to sleep. He was bouncy and very active. He was also battling a cold/cough so that’s probably why he couldn’t go back to sleep.
Most parents would complain about this or make a big deal. The talks around the water cooler the next morning usually revolve around how miserable they were the night before, how the baby kept them awake. But I have something to say to you if you’re one of those parents.
Watch the video and let me know what you think about this.
