Not that I want to be hated....but my knowledge of children keeping parents awake is theoretical...my daughter slept through the night in the hospital after she was born!....the nurses chastised me for not waking her to eat....so for 5 days after getting home I did that...when she went in for her first pediatric appointment the doctor was surprised she'd gained over a pound...I asked if I still had to wake her up at night to feed her....he looked at me like I was insane "You have a newborn who's big and healthy and sleeps through the night? Don't wake her up!"...I never did again. I'd put her down at 8....wake her up at 8 to say Bye Bye to Daddy.
