Sleep, Glorious Sleep!!

I discovered "Gripe Water" yesterday. It's an herbal remedy for gas, hiccups, colicky baby stuff. Looks like water and smells like black licorice, but it's supposed to work even better than the mylicon drops. Baby A doesn't seem to benefit at all from the mylicon stuff.

Now I can't be sure yet that it is a result of the gripe water, but Baby A actually slept for over 6 hours straight last night. She usually only sleeps like that in the afternoon. Night time for me usually consists of feeding every two hours and at around 1 am she screams for at least an hour before going back to sleep. So six straight hours of sleep for me was heaven!

I felt so rested today I actually went to the gym and worked out for an hour. I haven't done that since I first started getting dizzy with pregnancy. It kicked my butt, but in a good way. I hope to make this a habit 3 times a week from now on.

Now let's just hope that Baby A's new sleeping schedule will become a habit as well.

Glad to find your blog and glad to see baby is being so good. As soon as she's big enough to be separated from mom you need to let me keep her on babysitting night :)
