Night Feeds

|

Whenever people ask me about Max, they always ask if he is sleeping through the night yet. It's just one of those questions that everyone asks.

I tell them 'no, he still wakes once, sometimes twice for a feed each night'. I also explain that I really don't mind him waking up and I mean it, I really don't mind.

Last night though Max slept right through for the first time. He slept from 7.3o until 11pm in his pram (we were out) and then from 11pm until 7am in his bed.

As I was getting ready for bed tonight and I was wondering if he would sleep through again. I realised that I was kind of hoping he wouldn't and I started to wonder why I like him waking up to feed during the night.

It didn't take me long to work out that it's because the only time I get to breastfeed him is when he is all sleepy and relaxed, and that only happens during the night and first thing in the morning.

If Max stops waking up to feed in the night I will miss out on that special time with him. Which makes me feel really sad.

So I hope that next time someone asks me if Max is sleeping through the night yet I still get to say no.
