My hubby & I are firm believers in bedtime routine for all little ladies in our house.The ladies are in bed most nights between 645 & 730. But occasionally this rule is broken. This routine is starting to payoff with the youngest member of our house 9 weeks old now & sleeping 9 hours straight without waking up! WOO HOO for me! The only down fall is that she goes to bed @ 7pm so that still means I am up in the middle of the night feeding the BABY. You may be asking well why don't you wake her up feed her before you go to bed. That doesn't work. The long sleep stretch is only achieved when she is first put to bed for the night. She is learning to sleep all night & if I were to wake her that would just mess her up! But we are getting ever so close to sleeping all night!
