It took four months, but Ella's arms have finally stopped flailing around at night when she sleeps. She started sleeping through the night at 6 1/2 weeks but she always had to be swaddled to stay asleep all night. Tonight was the second night she has slept without being wrapped in a baby burrito. Suprisingly, she prefers her side and her tummy as sleeping positions....who knew! Now maybe some of her hair will grow back on the back of her head. We put her down between 7:30 and 8pm and wake her up at 6:30am. We actually may have to start putting her to bed earlier because its hard to wake up a sleeping baby.(breaks your heart)
Our smart, sweet, compassionate and funny "big girl".
