Good Night, Sleep Tight
Grace does it. Claire doesn't.
In fact, Grace LOVES to sleep. She will sleep in between each feeding for at least two hours and then sleep 11 hours at night. She is a baby after my own heart.
This girl knows how to do it. She can put herself to sleep, UNLIKE SOMEONE ELSE I KNOW. And she pretty much stays asleep until it's time to eat again. Claire, on the other hand, naps much like a cat. 15 minutes here, 7 minutes there. And don't even think about quietly eating marshmallows while sitting on cotton balls in a sound-proof room. That kind of racket will wake her instantly!!
But there is a catch to all of this. Yes, Grace sleeps long stretches at night. Yes, she takes good naps during the day. But on those occasions that she is upset and can't go to sleep, she will scream until your ears bleed.
