Night time feedings

Alice eats about every 3 hours. This means that she typically wakes up to eat at 12:00am, 3:00am and 6:00am. It is fairly dark in our bedroom, but we leave the bathroom light on with the door cracked so we are able to see pretty well.
Although I am tired, I still enjoy her night time feedings. Sometimes she is active...kicking, waving and making noises, which I'm sure wakes up her daddy. Othertimes, she lies there placidly with her hands clasped together across her chest. Regardless of her feeding style, I love to look at her face and see her black button eyes staring up at me.

Well...in the dark, her pupils are HUGE and black. Plus, I can't see blue in the dark!

Hi, Cristy & Larry & Alice.
Cynthia from LA here. I highly recommend "The No-Cry Sleep Solution" by Elizabeth Pantley. This book has been a lifesaver with Jake, who decided to shift from feedings every 3 hours to every 1/2 hour. (Crazy little man!!!) Just in case Alice decides to sleep less....... this book is GREAT!!! Love to you. Cynthia (and Jill and Jake)
