My baby sleeps in a bassinet in our room, but I pick him up and bring him to the nursery to breastfeed him in the night when he wakes. Around 3 am, he started making his usual waking-up noises, so I picked him up in the dark and tiptoed to the nursery where we have a night light and glider station all set up.

And it turns out he is ASLEEP. Like, REALLY asleep. I had to lay him in his crib to keep snoozing and he’s going on 40 minutes with no sign of actually waking. I could’ve been asleep myself this whole time but instead I’m sitting here like a dummy. I’m delighted he is still going but MAN I wish I’d left him alone and gone back to sleep myself!
