All summer long Claire has been waking up every two or three hours at night to eat. But for the past two nights she has slept from 8 pm until 2 am (six whole hours!), woke up to eat, and then went back to sleep until 5 or 6 am. Oh happy day! Several people told me she should be able to sleep longer once she reached 10 lbs, which is what she was when I weighed her this week. She has also started sucking her thumb when she is sleepy, which helps her to soothe herself back to sleep on her own. We may have a hard time breaking this habit later down the road, but at this point I'm all for it.
