I hear a lot about babies that will not sleep through the night, from the day you bring them home until they're 2 or 3. I honestly have no idea what these poor women have gone through, I have been lucky enough to have our daughter (who is now 5 months) sleep all the way through the night...since we brought her home! (Admittedly, sometimes during a growth spurt, there'll be a few nights in a row when she'll wake up and take a whole 5 oz bottle, but then she falls asleep 5 minutes later.)
I am wondering...is this sleeping through the night thing normal? I mean, my siblings and I all did the same thing.... I'm wondering if perhaps night waking is due to the nurses in our area telling us to wake baby every 3 hours to feed...
Don't get me wrong, I'm not anxious to get up in the middle of the night if I don't have to...! But, is anyone else experiencing this?
