Sweet Dreams

I’ve been wondering about the definition of “sleeping through the night” when it comes to a baby. Does it just mean that baby can go seven or eight hours without waking up to eat? Or does it mean baby doesn’t wake up at all in the wee hours?

Up until this point, Justin has been going to bed at 8:00, waking up for a feed at 1:30 and 6:00, and sometimes going back to sleep until 9:00. For a guy who’s not quite two months old, that seemed pretty good. But last night was a gift from God: Justin went to bed at 8:00, woke up at 4:00 for a feed and went right back to sleep (it’s now after 7 and he’s still sleeping). If this could be the norm, I’d be so happy.
