I'm in shock!!!! I've just slept from 9:30pm till 4am and not been woken by either of my children!!
My DD has always been a nightmare sleeper, feed every 1-2 hrs for her first four months, finally getting to waking every 2-3 hrs around 6 months and never really improved from there. She's almost 3yrs old now and started sleeping better once competition arrived.
My DS (7 months) is much better but still has me up 3-4 times a night (as well as DD get ups for a wee)
Well done! I had one of those nights a couple of weeks ago. I felt almost drunk with sleep, very odd. And even if it doesn't happen again tomorrow or the next night, hold onto the hope that it will happen again soon
I have one DD, 4, and am 37 weeks pregnant. She sleeps relatively well but yesterday via a series of small miracles I managed an uninterrupted day time nap of the kind that was standard pre children. OMG I was delirious - no food, drink, sex, anything could rival it. And now I probably won't get another for four or more years ...
Back to the normal mayhem tonight. . Nice to know sleep can actually happen though.
It was nice to have you all on here last night who genuinely shared my joy! so I didn't have to tell anyone in the real world. The only parent I came across yesterday was my neighbour who often tells me that both her children slept thru from 8 weeks , I don't think she'd have understood!
I too had the best nights sleep last night from the dc since DS was born nearly 3 years ago. Or at least I could have done if it were not for DH stalking round the house at 4am, looking for intruders, apparently he thought he heard someone say 'shush' Am up tonight with dd 14 mo who has a random 2 hour waking every couple of weeks, just as I'm getting back on track with the sleeping and feeling vaguely human again
