It has been four nights in a row now little Isla has slept through the night and I am wondering is four nights enough to make a pattern. I have heard that after three days/nights that a baby can learn new patterns and routines. Though I may be getting a little excited about the future of my sleep.
Isla slept through her first night at six weeks. I freaked out big time. I woke up suddenly and realised that she had not fed and the light was coming in to our room. Instantly I had to check she was still breathing. She was fine she was just having a big sleep it was a twelve hour one. Since that day we have dabbled with full night sleeps and if not we would usually only feed once through the night at two. Over a month ago Isla slept for six nights in a row through the night and I was ecstatic. Then we went on holidays and the routine was broken.
At the moment Isla is determined to get this crawling thing down. I think she is wearing herself out each day with the frantic arm and leg movements she does to get around. Also more and more food is going down so I think she must be fuller by the end of each day. Could be winning here though the start of movement will mean that I will be watching her like a hawk so things don’t get destroyed.
I have my fingers crossed that we will keep this sleep pattern until those dreaded teeth come up again. Honestly teething is just no fun. Mind you I would be happy if the teeth just magically appear through the night.
What do you think, am I home free of the two o’clock feed?
