Night life

Melissa is 22 months and still not sleeping through the night. Twice a night -- sometimes less, sometimes more, but usually twice -- she wakes to nurse. We tried to wean her of this a few months ago, but she outstubborned her mother, who couldn't handle her howling for hours. (I would try to comfort her but she would have none of that.)

This week we are trying again. Night 1, she was up and yelling from 2 AM to 4 AM. Night 2 she just woke up briefly around 2 and went back to sleep docilely when I went in and rocked her briefly. Night 3, last night, she howled from 1:30 for hours again. At least it felt like hours; I stopped looking at the clock after my fifth or so trip to her room.

Wish us luck!
