cluster-feeding through it all. I feel like I feed her almost constantly between 8 pm and whenever she decides to call it a night.
Some nights she'll go to bed without a fight and other nights she pushes us to our limit. (She screamed from 10 pm until 1 am last night). Rachel occasionally sleeps through the night...sometimes she wakes up only once...other times she'll wake up between 2 and 5 times a night. We hate those other times.
So, you see we don't really have a schedule, per se. But we have established a routine of sorts so I guess that's a start. Is it possible to have a routine without a schedule? I don't know.
One of the funniest things that Rachel does is sleep with one eye partially open. It's the best when she's in REM stage because her eye will be spinning around--that's when we call her Mad-Eye Moody.
I'm excited for the time when Rachel will sleep through the night on a regular basis. I often dream of a land far, far away where mommies get to sleep all night long and their babies never ever cry. Has anyone heard of a place like that?
