Seven hours!

I'm so totally excited!! Trystan slept from 11PM last night until 6AM this morning... straight through! I couldn't believe it when he woke up hungry and my clock said 6AM!! Let me tell you though, I think my boobs were bigger than my head at that point lol... like bigger than when my milk first came in!! Thankfully they deflated after he ate!! I hope he does that more often though... I couldn't remember what a full night's sleep was like until last night!! Yahoo

That's amazing!! 4.5 is still our longest stretch, and that only happened once!

That is what Luke did Saturday night. He went from 10-5. It was awesome. It was a fluke too because last night he was back up at 2 and 5.

Kai is still waking every 2-3 hours and he wants to eat. We try to ignore him, distract him, etc. But he is hungry and will take no other activity than eating. I am so tired...I would be happy to get 3-4 hours straight! JEALOUS!

This! And to make matters worse the last few nights Ryan has been waking up every hour between 4 and 8 AM fussing. So tired!

What is it with the 4-8 stretch? elaina fusses regularly through those hours. Definitely exhausting!

Yay!!! My boy did that once, too. Awesome!
(It's funny how different all babies are, too. I don't think there's ever any hope of my girl sleeping that long!)

You mentioned your girl eats a lot less than your boy per feeding - I wonder if it's related to that. Ryan seems to prefer small but frequent meals too so maybe that's why he wakes up so often. I wish I could get a 5 oz bottle into him!

Well, T went to bed around 10PM last night, then was up at 3:30AM to eat, and then again at 6AM. So at least I got a nice little strecth from 10PM to 3:30AM. The other night was the first time he had slept that long, but he did give me a six hour strecth last week that was nice, too! And thankfully, when he does wake up to eat, he always goes right back to sleep.
