Like some friends of mine, I am worried about saying this out loud but ….Pebble slept Through The Night last night! I SO badly needed it too, it was perfect timing. I don’t want to get my hopes up about a repeat performance…. but I can’t help it just a little bit!
I’ve been hearing of other babes doing this for ages, some since eight weeks old! I haven’t wanted to push Pebble or dramatically change her routine to encourage sleeping through, as I believe that she is a very active and hungry baby, and has needed the food.
Since starting solids I’ve been hoping, waiting, for that elusive sleep through. It’s been about a month now, with three meals a day (did I tell you? It’s going really well!). Still, I’ve been getting up at least once a night, sometimes twice. Not to mention the catnapping. No big day sleeps for this busy babe! I know, it could be a lot worse.
Perhaps Pebble felt the threat of that famous book Save Our Sleep that I was researching last night. I downloaded the set of documents for her age group for a mere $6. It has been an interesting read so far, and I will adopt some parts of it, but not all.
In any case, I will take that SEVEN HOURS STRAIGHT sleep that I enjoyed last night, and run with it. Whatever will be, will be.
How much sleep did you get last night?
