I haven't mentioned this on here before...for fear of jinxing our good fortune...but Clara is quite a sleeping beauty. Starting around 6 weeks old she started sleeping through the night...not every night...but most nights...and when I say through the night, I mean 6 hours. It was nothing short of heaven for us...the nights of waking every two to four hours was finally behind us.
Then, at around 8 weeks, it was a full night...eight hours full night. Even more bliss. Then...as in now...as in the for the past 3 weeks or so, Miss Clara has been sleeping 10 to 11 hours at a time.
I thought babies never slept through the night. And when she was brand new, I never thought I would get to sleep through the whole night again. Our secret was following the Babywise system. We started when she was a couple weeks old.... thank God. (after a couple of friends recommended the system to us!)
Now we are firm believers in the Babywise system. It's amazing. Our baby sleeps - we sleep - it's a miracle.
