Last night was the best night of sleep I have had since The Little Guy came. I think we went to bed at 10ish. At 2:15 am, I woke up realizing I haven't fed the baby since before I went to bed. Of course, I had to get up and check that he was still breathing (like all moms do) and of course he was. So, I went back to bed.
I laid there for about half an hour trying to decide "Do I wake up a sleeping baby to feed him?" "He is only 4 weeks old." "What if he did cry and I just didn't hear him?" "What should I do?" "Should I wake up Hubby to ask him?" "What would an experienced mom do (because I have no experience)?" "If I feed him, will he go back to sleep right away or want to be up for 2 more hours?"
Finally I decided if I wanted anymore sleep, I should just go feed him and get it over with. So, I fed him and he fell back to sleep right away - or didn't even wake up. Hallelujah!!
Hubby's alarm went off at 5:30am. The Little Guy woke up at 5:45am. Princess woke up at 6:15am - ughhhh!
But let me just tell you, I feel great today. I don't even feel like I need a nap. I think sleeping for 5 hours straight did wonders for me today. I even accomplished some house work and I have dinner ready to pop in the oven.
I'm not expecting it, but this would be a great schedule for the next couple weeks (until he starts sleeping through the night).
