Sleep

Over the past couple of weeks we have had many a conversations about sleep. Everyone asks – are you getting any sleep? Does Jackson keep you up all night? And we always respond that typically he’s good at night. We wake him every three hours to feed him, and he usually goes right back to sleep. Some people respond in shock that we wake him every three hours to feed him, but we’re just doing with the pediatrician told us to do.

A few nights ago Mommy accidentally turned off her alarm when she should have gotten up to feed Jackson. Jackson slept five and a half hours before he woke up hungry. It was the most consecutive sleep we had enjoyed in quite a while. This happened during another night as well. Since Jackson doesn’t have another appointment for a few weeks, we asked our OB/GYN about it, and she recommended we let him sleep.

So, last night – we did.

Jackson had a feeding at 11:30, was put in his pack-n-play, and slept until 5:30 this morning. Noelle fed him, put him back in his pack-n-play, and then we slept until 8:30. It was amazing.

Ahhhh sleep.

So I am just so jealous I don't know what to do! Neil is not a sleeper like that (William was) and I am starting to go crazy from sleep deprivation. :) He sleeps a full 12 hours, I just feel like I am never getting more than 3-4 hours in a row. I am very happy for you guys... and very sad for me! :)
