My baby will be 8 months on the 1st Feb

He was sleeping sooooo badly for ages. Up and down all night, feeding through the night. He is breastfed and was spending more time in my bed than in his cot. He was still in our room until about 3 weeks ago as I couldn't bear to put him in his own room knowing that he was waking up so often and I thought I'd be in and out of the room all night long. I was like a zombie and totally deprived of sleep, but then I started thinking maybe he hears us moving around in bed and thats what is waking him. I decided to start leaving him in his own cot at night and the first few nights were even worse than usual and I spent half the night sitting on the nursing chair in his bedroom feeding him and then settling him back to sleep. It felt like I had only just crawled back into bed and he was awake again. I was about to give in and bring him back in with us. I was going to get a co sleeper cot so I could have him right next to me but then he started sleeping for longer periods. One night he slept for a four hour stretch and then a few nights later he was only awake twice in the night. Once I fed him and the other time he settled back to sleep with a dummy.....and last night HE SLEPT THE WHOLE NIGHT!!!!!! I can't believe it! First time I've had a full nights sleep since the 1st of June when he was born!!! I put him down at 7.30pm, went to my own bed at 11pm expectinh him to wake up soon and at 3.30am I woke up and realised he hadn't woke up. Went to check on him and he was snoring (literally) and then he woke me up just after 6am talking away to himself! Please let it continue and not be a one off!!!!
