In the wee hours of Friday morning I glanced over at the clock (as I usually do these days) only to see that the clock read 5:00 am. I immediately freaked out, jumped out of bed and shouted to James, "Oh my goodness Piper and Phoebe just slept 6 hours, we better wake them up and feed them!" I seriously thought I was the worst mommy ever. Don't get me wrong the sleep was AMAZING but I didn't know if the babies could sleep that long.
The next day I called the pediatrician and spoke with a nurse. She said that sleeping six hours at night it totally fine since Phoebe and Piper are getting so big and they are eating plenty during the day. I learned that as long as they are eating between 20 and 24oz the girls can sleep as long as they want. I was thrilled by this news. To my surprise Phoebe and Piper repeated their 6 hour sleep pattern last night. I am just hoping and praying this will continue.
