Okay, I'm going to say it...

Baby Girl has been sleeping through the night for a week now.  Let's hope tonight is night number eight. 

She slept through the night on Thanksgiving night while we were at my parents' house.  She was totally worn out from the day and not getting a good nap, so we figured it was a fluke.  But then she did it the next night.

What was different about sleeping at my parents' house than at our own house?  Well, she was in a pack-n-play in the same room with us.  And we also had a space heater on, making it like 80 degrees in the room (my parents don't have heat or a/c upstairs b/c it's such an old house).

So we figured we'd try making her warmer at home.  We've started putting on a long-sleeved onesie underneath her pajamas.  And yesterday I went out and got her some fleece jammies (that are SOOOOO cute!!! These are them.)

And she's been sleeping through the night ever since. 

Seriously, kid?  You've just been COLD??????

Of course that hasn't been the case this entire time, but it's been our fix now.  Just wish we could've figured it out a few months ago!

That is wonderful!! I bet you don't know what to do with all your newfound energy from all the sleep. ;)

Yay! That is great news! I hope you are able to sleep too, and not constantly waking up to check on her.

(Those PJs are too cute, BTW!)

We have a space heater in DS's room. I was worried at first, but it is freezing in there, yet so warm in our room that there was no way I could turn the thermostat up without sweltering every night. I think it helps. His hands used to be so cold when he'd get up (he won't keep blankets on) and now they aren't. (And I know you aren't supposed to judge heat/cold by hands. But still.)

YAY!! *fingers crossed*

Will sleeps with a space heater too. I was a little leery of it at first, but the boy likes it WARM.

Such cute little jammies, too :)
