Sleeping through the night

Dear Lexi,

Last night you slept for over 12 hours straight! I.can.NOT.believe.it.!!! You are only 6 1/2 weeks old. I didn’t even know it was possible for babies this young to do this! Yesterday afternoon/evening you were being a little stinker and just wouldn’t sleep no matter what we did. Eventually, you feel asleep around 8:30. Typically, you’ll wake up around 11 to nurse one more time before you sleep until 7ish in the morning. Around midnight, we tried to wake you up to nurse and you just wanted to sleep. Reluctantly I let you sleep, knowing that meant I would have to get up in the middle of the night to feed you. I couldn’t believe when I woke up around 6 and my boobs were about to explode. I’m sure this long sleeping stretch was a fluke, but we can always hope this is the start of sleeping through the night.

Love, Mom

**Update: Not a fluke, you have consistently slept through the night since you were 6 1/2 weeks old. There have even been a couple of instances where you have slept until 11am or noon!
