At night, Scout likes to sleep, but she wakes up every 3-4 hours to eat. She’s been that way since we brought her home from the hospital…until about a week and a half ago.
7:55 PM: Scout goes to bed.
8:12 PM: Scout wakes up.
8:30 PM: Scout goes to bed again.
8:36 PM: I go to bed.
11:54 PM: I wake up and wonder why Scout isn’t up.
11:58 PM: Wonder if she’s still breathing.
11: 59 PM: Scout makes a noise. I figure she’ll wake up in the next 30 minutes.
2:31 AM: I realize my boobs are about to explode. I contemplate waking her up, but decide to pump instead.
2:40 AM: Pump only a little because I’m sure she’ll wake any second.
3:37 AM: Nudge Kiefer “accidentally,” and say, “Oh, good! You’re awake.Go check Scout. She’s been asleep for 7 hours and it’s freaking me out.”
3:38 AM: He checks and confirms she’s fine.
4:19 AM: Calm down enough to start to drift off.
4:27 AM: Scout wakes up after 8 hours of sleep in a row.
And that’s why I always get less sleep than Scout.
