Night #3 = success again (but less sleep for me)

So just quickly - last night we stayed at my mom's house. Kind of a trial run for those times when I want a night out or a night off and I leave her there overnight.

She has her own room at my mom's, with a playyard for a bed - which she's never slept in before. I was worried it might screw things up with her sleeping in her own room/crib.

In actuality, she slept better than she ever has. Ever.

She fell asleep around 9pm and didn't wake up again until 8 hours later.

Oh yes, this would have been absolutely delightful - if I hadn't been up every hour after 1am checking on her to make sure she was still breathing.

Today, I am completely exhausted and feeling rotten.

So now that we're home again I ask (beg) Ruby for a repeat, and this time I plan on taking full advantage of it and sleeping through the night as well.

That's so awesome that she slept through the night! C'mon Ruby! Do it again!!!

Thats so great! See Mommy knows what Ruby wants - she just needs to trust herself. I laughed at you getting up to check that she was breathing - that will so be me in 6 months!

Good luck at home!!! I hope she is a super-sleepyhead!

Hope she keeps up the good work! She sounds a lot like Baby M. I was worried about him sleeping through the night and we never had issues.

Funny--this is not the first time that I've heard tales about babies sleeping better than ever in a play yard...I might have to give it a try some night when I'm desperate!
