Just a quick post - since I said I'd keep you updated.
I called the pediatrician - and she said, in brief, that poor, dear Wiggles is not to eat before 4am (it's like he's a gremlin!). So, keep on with our bedtime rituals and putting him down around 7pm +/- 1 hour like we have (it's been pretty close to 7 this whole past week) and then if he wakes up before 4am - and she'd really like that closer to 5am even - don't feed him. Let him cry.
We can pat him and comfort him if we like - but no picking him up. And for the love of all things, keep my boobies in my shirt.
Sigh. And of course, the first night under the new regime - Wiggles woke at 2am. And promptly cried for 1.5 hours. We'd all have gotten more sleep if I'd just fed him! (that only takes 40 minutes)
But. Night 2? He slept until 6am!
It's too soon to declare victory - but it's definitely a step in the right direction.
