Sleeping through the night

For breastfeeding babies, "sleeping through the night" is defined as 5 hours. This is apparently because breast milk is digested so much more quickly than formula. However, naturally there are parents that report getting 8-10 hours, even at an early age.

Guess what?

For the past two nights, the Blueberry has done 7 hour feeding blocks! As you know, a feeding block is timed from the start of one feeding to the start of the next so I can't say precisely how much sleep we got. However, I am certain that we slept for more than 6 hours last night, likely 6.5!

What a sweet baby!
