6 Month Old Sleeping Through the Night

My daughter turned six months old this past Sunday. It is hard to believe that it has gone by so fast. All the people who said it was going to get easier seem to be right for the most part. She had been sleeping great last week and even did a few all night stretches*.  The people who say that we shouldn't get used to anything she is doing were also right. The littlest thing can change her sleep patterns. Her six month shots and her second set of teeth coming in have gotten her back to her old sleep habits. We know this too shall pass but we are hoping it changes back sooner than later.

*For some reason all of the baby books define sleeping through the night as a five hour stretch. Who decided this and what were they thinking? When 'A' was going to bed at 7:00 and sleeping until midnight she was technically sleeping through the night. Really? She was still waking up two other times in the night as well so we waking up three times. Luckily the "through the nights" I mentioned above were truly through the night; 7:15PM until 6:15AM. Can't wait to have those back.
