But, can I just tell you the one question since having a baby that I get ALL the time, and that seriously annoys.the.crap.out of me?
Well, I'm telling you anyway.
"Is she sleeping through the night yet?"
I literally hear that maybe 2-3 times a DAY...from!random!people!
Do me a favor, and rephrase the question as to not make me feel like a failure that my 5 1/2 week old isn't "sleeping through the night" yet.
Perhaps..."How has your sleep been?"..."What's her night-schedule like?"....
When you ask me something and I have to say..."Um...no"
I realize, there are some amazingly lucky people who come home with a baby (typically, it seems it's the bigger babies) and they sleep for something crazy like 8-12 hours straight.
I have to remind myself that those are rare cases.
I'm in the majority.
Typically, newborns wake up every few hours. That's normal.
I've even been semi-lucky in the fact that I usually get a good 4-5 hour stretch of sleep, and then another 3-4 hours after a feeding.
Thats.not.bad. [Could be worse, and we've had a few of those looong nights, so I'm aware.]
NO more asking that question.
It's driving me mad.
In fact, the next time I may just flip out.
