When the girls were newborns, how well did they sleep? Because ours seems to be fond of staying up all night and sleeping all day. Friends who have babies talk about the lack of sleep that comes with these early days and weeks, but all of them seem to speak of frequent feedings keeping them up at night, not simply a child so awake you couldn't possibly think about getting any shut eye. It's a schedule that neither Janice nor I are able to adapt to--trying to sleep when every bone in your body wants to be awake--and as a result, we're hardly sleeping at all.
