7 Hours!!

Yep! My baby girl slept for 7 hours straight at the age of 8 weeks old! After a nonsensical dramatic fight into unconsciousness (I don't know where she gets her sense a drama from at all! hehe) Mae slept from 10pm until 5am! Yahoo! She even transferred off of me (as she was asleep on me for roughly an hour of that) into her baby burrito swaddling blanket and into bed. Yippee! Yes, unlike her brother (although I'm not sure I ever tried that trick with Ace...) Mae likes to be swaddled... but only AFTER she's asleep. So I don't know if it's fair to say 'she likes it' or more accurate to say she's unaware of it. However! It seems to do the trick!

Now last night certainly was not an average night (hence the momentous blog to capture such an important milestone on the road toward healthy sleep...) Typically, Mae wakes every 3-4 hours for a snack. Once or twice she's gone 5 hours and often it is closer to 4 rather than 3... but the point being - she typically wakes at least 2 times in the middle of the night. So YAY!!! I am very hopeful that our little miss will be a better sleeper than her brother So since 6 hours is considered 'sleeping through the night' for a breastfed baby then:

HURRAY, Mae! You've slept through your first night!

The swaddling sack was my savior when M was a newborn!
