Sleepy Sleeperson

Since all you bloggers are talking about babies sleeping, I decided I would slide in on your coat tails.
Sonya has been sleeping through the night since she was 5 days old. I repeat that, since she was 5 days old. Most people don't believe me when I say that. One of the first things people ask me is "how is she sleeping during the night?". They are stunned by my response and then eye me up and down with disbelief. Sonya was 9 lbs. 5 oz. when she was born. About the size of a bowling ball. Maybe her stockiness had something to do with her sleeping through the night. All I can say is that I am lucky. I also know that both me and my brother were sleepers, so maybe it is hereditary. But I have also been very diligent about not having her form any habits that could break this routine.

1) She slept in a bassinet next to our bed for three months. I never once considered co-sleeping with her. I had heard from SO MANY people that breaking them from co-sleeping is such a pain so I did want to even go there. Plus, a small baby in a massive bed would make me a nervous Nelly.
2) When she was 2 1/2 months old we moved her into her crib. She was getting so big for the bassinet plus she was sleeping through the night, that it seemed like the logical choice. She has been fine with it sense. She naps in there too. We turn her sound machine on and she loves it.

3) Night time routine is essential. She had a hard time going to sleep at a decent hour until we figured out that keeping her arms out the swaddle allowerd her to wake herself up all the time. Once that bright light bulb went on in our heads, she has been going to sleep around 8:15 every night sleeping until 7 ish. Bath, nurse, bed.

Every once and awhile she wakes herself up by either wiggling her arms and legs out of the swaddle, or by scooting to the end of the crib and running out of room, or by simply rolling on to her side or belly. I just come in, rearrange her and give her her pacifier (I hate the name BINKY) .

She is perfect. She is my doll, my princess, pumpkin, chunky monkey, funny bunny, Poops McGee, and whether she wakes up 10 times or sleeps through the night, she'll always be perfect!

You ARE a lucky mommy! Coleton has never been a sleeper. Not even when he was a newborn. Not even when he spent nights in his crib. Never. Gah! Lord help me!

Bayley is usually a really good sleeper, too. However, since ear infections, teething, and constipation can wake up anyone... well, she is off her schedule, but we're slowly getting back to it.

I'm with you, though. I never co-slept and she's always slept in her crib. It worked for us, so that's what I stuck with.

That is so adorable!

She's adorable.

I never co-slept either. I am a VERY light sleeper and knew that I would never be able to get any sleep. H has slept in his own bed since birth.
