That made me laugh too.
My baby sleeps in our room and it's so much easier to nurse him back to sleep. Even if he doesn't sleep right away I at least feel good that he's not hungry or thirsty.
Thanks for normalizing this for me. I know that this is all normal and that he needs to feel secure at night. Just hard hearing about all those glorious nights from other moms.
He has slept 8-10 hour stretches but they are rarely consistent and fleeting! Ah one day.
