Confession in the King Household

One of the many things that most people are shocked by is no one stirs in our house until after 8 am. Niah usually goes to sleep around 7:30 at night and we usually go to sleep between 10-11 but nobody wakes until 8 am or later. If Niah goes to bed late she will not wake up until closer to 9. I am very thankful for my little sleeper.

Niah is overall a good sleeper, she goes right to bed and does not wake in the night. There are those few exceptions such as if people are at the house she seems to wake once in the night. If she is teething, if I have been gone a few hours at night and someone else has watched her, or if Kyah is in town. She always wants me and the rule is she does not get out of the crib so if Matthew goes in there she will scream louder but the second I walk in she lays down and goes right to sleep. Lately, she has not been going to sleep very well and wants me to sit with her in her room. This just started and I have only done it 3 or 4 times but usually if I sit with her for 5 minutes and she is calm I can leave before she is asleep and she is fine. I figure I will go with it for a little while longer but not sure I want a bad habit to form. I did read about how 18 months is another sleep disturbance so I am wondering if it is related to that but either way she is still a wonderful sleeper! Niah goes down for a nap around 2 hours after she wakes up and sleeps 2 1/2 hrs to 3 1/2 hours.

Here is my sweet girl

  1. Oh how lucky! that is great that you have a good sleeper. I have a 19 month old (almost 20 months), and she still wakes up once in the night nearly every night. Last night was an exception, she slept all night. I have (ok maybe I don't have to, but I don't have luck having her get herself to sleep) to either lay with her or nurse her to sleep. I love my baby, but I am very jealous of people who's babies sleep better than mine! Happy for you though! :-)
