It’s a miracle!

Last night, my baby slept through, from 7:30 pm to 5:50 am!

Ok, I know, they say that a newborn who sleeps 6 hours in a row is “sleeping through the night”. But that’s of little comfort to the parents. And our boy had slept through the night twice at about 3 months old, from 9 pm to 7 am or something like that. But it was so long ago I can barely remember.

Now Sunday night, he slept through to 4:30. Monday night, to 5:15. We were crossing our fingers! Tuesday night, he woke up at about 1 and I decided not to feed him at that time but only comfort him. At 3, I caved in and fed him as he kept waking up. Then this morning, he slept until 6.

And guess what? Last night was the first day of the big fireworks festival in Vancouver. They are just a few blocks away from our place and it is so loud you’d think noone could sleep through that (granted, last year I did sleep through some of them, but I was 9 months pregnant and exhausted). Well, our boy never woke up.

As I am getting ready to go back to work in just over a week, it is very good news. Now to see if he’ll do it again or if it was just a fluke! Oh, and well, if only I could sleep through the night too…
