My baby slept through the night for the first time today! And I mean really sleep through the night, not 4 hours in a row like they tell you in prenatal classes. She went to bed around 7:30 as usual, stirred a bit a t 3 (enough for me to look at my watch, but not enough to consider going to feed her), which had been her semi-regular wake-up time when we have been home this summer, then woke up again at 5, at which point I thought it was too late to feed her and I would let her cry. But she didn’t even cry, she was just whining a little, then falling asleep, then whimpering a bit more, until maybe 5:40. Then she slept again until 6:20, at which point I picked her up and told her how wonderful she was!

I know it’s only the first time. It may or may not happen again for a while. But it will happen again. It IS a sign of good things to come. And I have another six weeks left to encourage it before I go back to work. Things are seriously looking up this morning!
