Unbelievable.

M' is now 1 week old. The first few days we were having trouble getting her to stay asleep during the night for more then 1 1/2 hours. She would want to eat and then go back to sleep. . .it wasn't exactly working for us. We were kind of aiming for at least 2-3 hours in a row. Anyways we started to experiment with her sleeping and we figured out that if we set her in her car seat, swaddled and on a thick blanket, along with a thick blanket over her body she would sleep much longer. Last night was the second night trying it and it was unbelievable. I fed her at 11pm and laid her down about 11:30pm. . .then I went to sleep. I slept and slept and slept. I finally woke up at 4am. . .checked to make sure she was still breathing and made Mike check her. . .then I went back to sleep. Finally at 6:30am I heard M'. . .I couldn't believe she slept for so long. I was amazed at 4am. . .so 6:30am was incredible. I'm hoping this continues. . .I loved it.
My little sleeper.
