Even though we have had our bad nights, or series of bad nights (and I always seem to write about those!), for the most part, Cate is a great sleeper. Dr. Weissbluth would be so proud – this book is my sleep bible. I seriously read about six sleep books while pregnant, and this one is by far my favorite.
I love how passionate and angry and self-righteous and slightly ridiculous parents can be about their approaches to sleep. It's so interesting. I swear, you bring up sleep theories in a room full of parents, and it can go from friendly to freezing in about two seconds. There's the baby-wisers and the co-sleepers and everything in between. There's the parents who have no schedule and then there's the parents that can't think beyond their schedule. You can probably guess where I fall on that last continuum, although I consciously try to be somewhat flexible…
Here's our theoretical schedule:
6:30-7:00 a.m. – wake up!
8:15-10:00 a.m. – morning nap
1:15-4:00 p.m. – afternoon nap
6:30 p.m. – bedtime
1:00-3:00 a.m. – wake up to eat
Any thoughts on all things sleep?
