My daughter slept for 7 hours last night.
I woke up thinking she was dead...
She went down at about 11:00pm. I woke up a couple of times throughout the night convinced she would be up any minutes but kept going back to sleep siting that whole, "Don't wake a sleeping baby" thing.
At 5:45am I heard, "Mommy!! Mommy!!"
That's the wrong child, I thought.
The Boy was up but The Girl still wasn't.
I ran into her room at 6:00am and ripped her out of her swing and un-swaddled her. She was breathing (and looking at me like I was crazy) but still sound asleep. She would have slept longer if I hadn't busted in there. She had a clean diaper as well, so I was convinced all of her systems had shut down for the night.
But now, almost 4 hours later I am happy to report that she has eaten twice, pooped and peed. So all systems seem to be a go. I have been told that once a baby reaches 11 pounds they are physically able to go 8 hours without eating. I guess it is possible that my little porker could be 11 pounds, but man...it still feels like she is too young for this. I am sure it was a fluke thing and this won't continue to happen every night, but still. She will be 6 weeks old tomorrow. She's an overachiever my little peanut.
