Is Sleeping Through The Night a Fable?
My Lil worm is not a good sleeper. Monkey boy was not a good sleeper. How I longed for a baby that would sleep. I prayed for it. I wished for it. I read every book on it,and I didn't get it. As most of you know we just moved into our house right before Thanksgiving , and then Lil Worm had the Flu. I figured that his lack of sleeping was because of the transition to the house and the Flu. Well the house is no longer new, and the Flu is over. Lil worm just turned 9 mo. Last night he was up 3 times. I didn't have to feed him,but I did have to rock and snuggle with him. I Treasure our snuggling time,but I would love for it to happen at noon and not 2 am. The 2 nights prior he did sleep through the night, but why can't this happen for like 7 Nights in a row? It's such a tease to have a 9 mo old sleep for 2 nights and on the 3 be up 3 times. I can't stand when people ask you the dreaded question"Is he a good sleeper?" "Does he sleep through the night?" I always respond "He Sleeps when he wants to sleep" uggg. One again I am just convinced that Sleeping through the night is A Fable . A story that sleep deprived Mommy's made-up long ago to cope with their lack of sleep.
