Tomoe’s 3 weeks old! The past 3 days have shown some ups and downs, though.
Last night, she slept well, and I could actually sleep the full night. The night before, she would not sleep until 5 am. She would only sleep if she was sleeping with us. So, she finally went to sleep on our bed with us. Last night, she slept in her own bed perfectly fine. Tonight, she’s a bit fussy again. She’s been really hungry, and wouldn’t stop demanding food. Finally, we filled her up just a few minutes ago. She’s now in her new bed on a bed. That’s right, she has a new bed, but it’s a small mattress that she can use on our bed. It’s designed to keep her in one place, so she doesn’t move around, and also to keep us from rolling onto her.
Now, my question is, do you or did you let your baby sleep in your bed with you? It’s quite common in Japan, but in Canada, I believe it’s not so common. If you allow your baby to sleep with you regularly, they won’t get out of this habit until they’re 3 years old. Hopefully, we don’t make this too regular.
