|Another brown-eyed girl! Lily is not alone!|
I could not ask for an easier baby. Ada is so, so easy.
She is so easy!
She sleeps for 3-4 hours, nurses for maybe 20 minutes, and goes back to sleep for another 3-4 hours. She nurses twice at night. I'm tired and old, so she stays in our bed after her first nighttime nurse and is very pleasant to sleep next to.
And she's gaining weight.
She never cries, except when it's time to eat. Then she eats and sleeps some more.
Really, the most trouble she gives us is that we have to thoroughly wake her up in order for her to nurse.
Out of our nine, we've only had one other that slept this much and was this easy. That was Lily. I worried about her - after our first, Benjamin, who never slept more than twenty minutes at a time and did not believe you could safely be awake and not nursing - I was sure she was developmentally delayed or otherwise impeded.
Then she sat up at four months, crawled at five months, and walked at seven months.
And before the age of two, she had potty-trained herself (by crawling up on the potty and sitting backwards) and washed my contacts down the sink.
Maybe I was right to be worried.
