It's pretty widely known that Molly is a fabulous baby but for one dramatic flaw. She is almost 11 months old and still wakes up about twice a night.
Over the last few weeks there have been some days I have not turned on Molly's monitor. Either I forgot to turn it on or had it turned down or the girls had changed the frequency. And on these nights Molly has MIRACULOUSLY slept through the night. I do not think that she awoke and screamed for hours and finally gave up and slept. Our rooms are really close and I am a light sleeper. I would hear her if she ever cried.
I have come to the conclusion that her little problem might be my problem. Since we put her in her crib, when I've heard start to stir or cry a little I have raced downstairs to get her a bottle and get her back to sleep before she woke up the girls. So maybe all this time she has just needed to wake up, get oriented again, and go back to sleep on her own? Maybe I've been racing to put her back to sleep when she was able to do it on her own this whole time?
But now I wonder, do I keep the monitor turned off?
