7 hours

Claire slept for 7 hours straight Saturday night, which far exceeded her previous record of 5 hours.  Most nights it's closer to 3 and a half or 4 hours between feedings.  It's not so bad now that we only have 2 overnight feeding, we each just take one.  When it was really hard was when she ate EVERY 3 hours all night no matter how tired she was.  Those were some loooong nights.  We really can't complain though because she's always gone right back to sleep after her night bottles.  Now the exception to this is her 6am bottle.  This is her daddy bottle and she expects to come lay in bed between her mommy and daddy.  She looks very cute smiling and looking back and forth between us kicking.  Of course after about 10 minutes she kicks herself right back to sleep until daddy leaves for work around 9am. 

 Our room is very crowded!

Unfortunately that 7 hour stretch was not a long term thing.  The past few nights have only had 2 and 3 hour stretches between bottles.

This too shall pass! It's wonderful that Troy pitches in with his sweet Claire...believe me, many fathers don't go there!
