When baby starts sleeping through the night

Baby feetA few weeks ago, someone advised me to see a herbalist when I mentioned that I didn’t get as much sleep as I would have liked. It made me feel slightly misunderstood.

I would have had no problems sleeping through the night if everyone else in our family had been asleep. The issue was that someone needed a bit of milk or some TLC every four to five hours or so.

But now it’s a different story. Baby Girl, who is eating more and being very mobile, has been sleeping through the night the last couple of nights, and I have been the one waking up every hour, worrying about why she’s not been up.

On Saturday, eight-month old Baby Girl slept for 11 hours and 18 minutes, setting her own personal record. While she was fast asleep, I was up checking on her breathing and making sure she was fine.

And she was.

I really don’t think I’ll need any herbs. I just need Baby Girl to continue what she’s doing to give me confidence to sleep through the night too.

    Yay! So good to hear that. I know how awful it is – not being able to rest even during the nights…and mothers need 110% of energy every day. I hope she sleeps that way from now on!

    I hope so too! Yesterday was the first night I slept for eight hours straight since Baby Girl was born. I’ve gone to bed too late the other days she’s slept through.. I guess I need to get used to going to bed earlier to make the most of this new sleeping pattern 🙂
