This week Anna has been on something almost like a sleep schedule, which is pretty awesome. Monday and Tuesday she went to sleep around 9pm and waking up around 3:30/4ish for a feeding, then sleeping again until 7 or later. That is great except for the fact that I am a night person and don’t get to sleep until around midnight, 11pm at the earliest.
Last night (Wednesday) I had this idea… why not wake her up and feed her before I go to sleep? I wasn’t sure if this was a good idea or not, but decided to try it. I woke her up to eat at midnight, then she went right back to sleep and I was asleep not long after. When I laid down in my own bed I decided to google and see if I had made a mistake or not… turns out this is actually a suggested thing to do. Why didn’t anyone tell me this?? She slept straight through until 7am!
