Once you have a baby you realize how little sense that expression makes. I consider myself to be a good sleeper (when I’m allowed to be!) and my idea of a good night’s sleep doesn’t involve getting up for a snack in the middle of it.
Our girl is noisy in her sleep. She grunts and sighs. She sleeps best tightly swaddled because otherwise she startles herself awake with arm and leg movements. Sometimes she cries out in her sleep.
She sleeps like a baby. And, these days, so do I.
