Major Milestone

Last night - at 3 months and 10 days old - the twain slept through the night!!!

They went down at 9:30 after their mega-feeding and then Sir Miles woke up at 4, but was mollified in 3 minutes when TD gave him a binky and then they slept until 6am! After another mega-feeding, they slept until 8:45!

It's a Christmas miracle.

Let's see if it happens again...

Oh god... that's the best! Best! Best! When the kid(s) sleep through the night, your whole life changes. It's such a relief. Hurray for you all!

I remember this milestone well. It's probably the best of all the first-year moments, at least from a parent's perspective. Here's to more restful nights.

Wonderful news!

Our little guy has been able to get to sleep on his own two nights in a row. (That is, we put him in his crib, and he actually falls asleep there instead of crying to be held.) Last night he slept from 11 pm to 5 am. It felt like a huge luxury.

Hope you keep getting a full night of sleep!

P.S. What is a mega-feeding? I'm wondering if I ought to be feeding Little Man a little more in the evening.
