Putting an End to Sleepless Nights


Now, seven months later, Ella usually goes to bed easily and sleeps until at least 5 a.m. But there have been setbacks. Last night, for example, Ella was sick and would sleep only when lying on top of me. As soon as she gets better, we'll have to do a mini refresher course in Ferber. We've had to do a couple of these before, and she gets back on track with very little crying after just one or two nights. A friend's mom once told me, "The last good night of sleep you'll ever get is the night you get pregnant," and that's true. But we're getting the best sleep we can, and right now that's good enough for us.
