Sleep Talking...

As a new momma - I'm finding that people sure do like to talk about baby sleep habits. It's probably the number one question - "How's she sleeping?" followed by "Where is she sleeping?" And it is definitely a subject everyone has an opinion on.

Funny thing is - that now researchers are saying that genetics have more to do with how a baby / kid sleeps than anything else.  We've been lucky that Lucille likes her sleep -- and wakes up once in the middle of the night for feeding and goes back to sleep easily - but (there's always a but) only on me or in the bed. Well, beggars can't be choosers... and I think we all get a decent nights sleep in the end.

So in short, if you find a way that your baby sleeps that you're comfortable with roll with it. At least thats what I take from the article. Sleep is also the first subject in a great little book I just started called How Eskimos Keep Their Babies Warm - which is on sale on Amazon for $6.38 right now... and worth checking out if you are interested in how babies are raised around the world.

Any sleep stories (good, bad or ugly) readers want to share?
