I am so excited to say that last night went great! Yesterday, after our 7 am breakfast, the day went well. I nursed Bean around 3:00 for his late nap. And not again until bedtime around 10:00. During the night he woke up twice. Once at 2:30 a.m. when he reached into my shirt and I simply said “Night-night all gone.” and I handed him his sippy cup of water. He took it with out any complaint and fell back asleep. The second time he woke up was around 5:30. He was just stirring but never reached for my shirt. I asked him if he wanted his water and he said “No.” He cuddled up on me and went back sleep. He slept until about 8:30, he was out of the bed about 10 minutes after I got up. He walked into the living room and said “Hi Mommy.” I asked him if he was hungry and he said “Yes, Night-night all gone.” I picked him up and we made breakfast.
Not once did he ask or reach for Night-night!
