I’ll have to admit that little Hannah is definitely taking the meaning of beauty sleep to another level. We are actually quite amazed at the number of sleeping hours she is clocking in. Given the fact that she was practically up the whole of the first night I was with her, I was prepared for the worst. But so far she has been a very good girl, and will contentedly sleep for a few hours straight after a satisfying feed. At times, I have even had to wake her up for a feed or a diaper change or for her bath.
For most of the time too, Hannah is able to self-soothe herself to sleep, although by and by, I am sensing our smart girl is beginning to learn how to “manja” and sometimes prefers instead to be cuddled to sleep.
Thing is, her long sleeping hours are mostly during the daytime. Her day and night schedule is still not established yet, and she sleeps less during the night. I am trying to change that as best as I can, by creating a fixed bedtime routine, and also by making night-time feeds are short and boring as possible.
Some of the time, Hannah has to learn how to sleep through the noise, because Ethan usually talks very loudly and excitedly. Sometimes, Ethan would even go over to Hannah’s cot and tell his sister, “Hannah, wake up!” 😛
I do so love watching her sleep…just like a peaceful little angel. I have even caught her smiling in her sleep at times!
