U seems to have settled into an actual “sleeping at night” schedule. I hope it lasts. He doesn’t seem to be trying to keep himself up, and he just goes and lays down in bed and goes to sleep on his own. I had wondered if that would ever happen in the absence of my pushing for it incessantly the way other people seem to think you have to do, and look, it has. Vindicated. (I understand other people have less flexibility than we do, but even factoring that in, I think just rolling with it is disfavored as a parenting approach).

I think the sleep disruptions were responsible for a lot of my mood issues over the past few years. Or contributed. I feel a lot more stable now.
