I am sooo tired! I have not "slept through the night" since Ryleigh was born...but some nights are better than others. Last night Ryleigh sure wanted to "visit" lots! She knows how to fall asleep on her own but that does not stop her from waking up every few hours and needing me. She does seem hungry everytime she wakes though, so I nurse her everytime. If DH goes in to help her back to sleep, she'll wake up SOONER than if I just nursed her??? I don't know what to do? Any advice?

Other than that, Ryleigh's a pretty happy girl this morning and ready to play! So, I guess that's what we'll do! Not too many plans for today....groceries, laundry, hopefully a walk if it warms up!

Hope everyone has a good day!

Yes it is a myth, you won't sleep until she moves out, so I've been told. Enjoy your day and sneek in a nap if you can
