So Davie has been sleeping 8-9 hours pretty consistently every night. But the other night she slept ALMOST ELEVEN!!! Why? I'm not sure, but I think it had to do with our heater shutting off randomly. We woke up and our house was 63 degrees. Steven and I discussed this being the only thing that was different, and so I looked it up. I found this on parents.com . . .
"Regulate the temp.
You know how you sleep better when the room's a little cooler? Well, your bundle of joy is no different. Keep your baby's room warmer during the day and cooler at night, Dr. Greene suggests. The optimal temperature for infant sleep is between 65 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit."
We'll experiment with that tonight and see if it makes a difference.
Also, the other day my friend Chelsea came over with her baby Gracie. Gracie was born 4 weeks early . . . and 2 weeks earlier than Davie. Chelsea took some pictures of the two new friends. I'm going to try and post some although I've never posted pictures here before.
