Trying to remember back to when Palmer was just new is harder than I thought. The time has gone by so quickly, I mean, 5 months already. It’s like time was in super fast forward!
For this post, I am going to clump months 0-3 all into one (because I don’t have time to do each month individually and because that’s how it is in the baby book and that’s how I remember it. Sad, I know!)

For the most part, Palmer has always been a good sleeper. We have never had a problem or struggle with putting her down at bedtime. For the first 3 weeks, she slept in her play yard in our bedroom, waking every 2-3 hours to eat (typical newborn). For most of the first few weeks, she slept most of the day and night, usually only waking to feed. Around the 2 month mark, a typical night was bed at 11:00pm, wake (on average) once through the night around 3 or 4:00am to eat then work for the day between 7:00am or 8:00am. Perfect!
