Now that we will have a new baby joining us on the outside in September, I am sure I will get to hear that typical question beginning pretty soon after the baby is born: "Is he/she a good sleeper?" Or the other most common question of, "Is he/she sleeping through the night yet?" Ah, if only it was common knowledge that babies are not supposed to sleep through the night, and "good" sleep for a baby does not mean that he sleeps in long stretches, uninterrupted, like an adult or a much older child sleeps.
So, if you have a baby or toddler or preschooler who does not "sleep through the night," then don't let the question get you down! Remind yourself, "My baby is NORMAL! And that is a good thing!"
Here's the article. Of course, it's by James McKenna - who else? ;)
