I for sure don’t want to jinx this…but I think it’s safe to tell you all:
Mabel is sleeping through the night!
I’m talking about 7pm to 8am! It’s been a week of this miracle and I want to scream it from the rooftops. No more diaper leaks in the morning since they are soooo dry compared to when she was waking up for feedings.
Jeez, it only took her two weeks shy of her 1st birthday, lol!
Crying it out didn’t work for her…and it didn’t work for me. I just couldn’t do it (maybe I’m a wuss?). I’ve learned that babies will sleep through the night when they are ready, some sooner than others…and apparently Mabel just needed nightly feedings for the first 11 months of her life.
She owes me when I’m old and can’t take care of myself…
And for all you ladies whose babies were sleeping through the night just weeks after you delivered them…you don’t know how lucky you’ve had it! 😉 Or maybe you do know how lucky you are, if it’s your second + child! My next baby better be like that! Honestly these are the first nights of great sleep I’ve had since I was about 6 months pregnant. And it feels wonderful!
Then I find myself thinking about having another baby….and I decide that right now, my priority is getting full night of sleep!!!
How long did it take your baby to sleep through the night?
