The Sleep Chronicles - Different Parent, Different Baby

The Queen's sleep has been all over the place. Sometime I get up in the middle of the night without complaint and other times I'm stomping my feet and huffing loudly. On one of my disgruntled nights, I decided we needed to share these duties so we agreed He would take over night duties on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

On these night I am guaranteed a full night's sleep and vice versa -- Yiipppeee!  The program was rolled out this past weekend and guess what happened? She woke up at midnight and 5a consistently with a wake up time between 6:30 am and 7:00 am. One of those nights she didn't even have a feeding until 5 she took a pacifier, rolled over, and fell asleep.

Monday I went to bed expecting the same result. Teach me to have expectations! She was up at midnight, 4:30a, and periodically until 7a (my designated wake time). 

Are you effin kidding me? She did the same thing on the night of the party.

What is He doing to create this result? Is my milk scented body waking her up? Is the wait for the bottle a good window for her to just go back to sleep? Is she choosing her favorite parent?

Whatever IT is, I'm totally jealous. If it just kinda worked out that way then I really hope this is the beginning of her new sleep cycle.

Gosh! Look how big the diaper looks on those newborn legs.

Does it work like that for you? Do you split up night duties? Are the results different depending on the parent?
