We were at my moms and I nursed her before we left. She slept in the car seat on the way home, then I got her out and let her sleep on me while I got a few house things done/played online. I kept expecting her to wake up to eat, but finally decided to just put her in bed. I put her in her crib (next to our bed) at 12:30am. And she slept til 5am!!! I wish I had taken advantage and slept more myself, but I am still okay with my four hours and getting to sleep in this morning
(For those who want to hate me...I did "pay my dues." L didn't sleep thru the night til well after K came along and still doesn't always sleep thru. And K didn't sleep thru til 15 months! So that's about 3.25 years of not sleeping a full night...no more than 3-4 hours at a time. And by then I was 5 months pregnant with Jo
OMG Roman slept last night from 10:00 pm - 5:30 am!! First time through the night. I was thinking the same thing this morning! I woke up at 5 and panicked, ran to check his breathing LOL....and then I ran as fast as I could to pump. Holy cow I was engorged!!!! I got the most ever--11 oz. in about 10 minutes!
I'm sure we won't get that lucky again tonight but it sure was nice!! And my first wasn't a good sleeper either. I was lucky to get more than an hour's sleep at a time. So I know how that is. Not fun! So far Roman's been a saint only waking twice a night typically when compared to how his big brother was.
There must have been something in the water last night! Caroline slept from 10:00 until 5:30. Like Memi said, holy engorgement batman. Caroline nursed and I still pumped off 7 ounces afterwards. I know it won't happen again for awhile but I loved every minute of it last night. Felt like a new woman today!
Wow. Lots of babies giving good stretches in here.
The second night, she was back on her normal 2 hour waking schedule. But then last night she slept from 9:30-11, woke and fell right back out when I put her on my chest (and she burped, so it was a bubble), and then slept until 2:30. So a good five hours again, without nursing.
So it's obviously not gonna be a true trend. But I gotta say...I would be happy with 4 hour stretches at this point, so five or more is like complete spoilage to me. My boys were lucky to be sleeping 2 hours at this stage. So I feel amazingly rested.
