sleeping through the night

If a baby cries in the middle of the night, but no one hears her, does she make a sound?

Last week we started trying to wean Brielle at night, which meant one of us, (mostly me) would get up with her every time she cried and try to rock her and comfort her back to sleep. Several nights, I think I maxed out at 2 hours of sleep. This week, since that plan was NOT working, we are just not responding to her cries. After one night of her seemingly endless wailing, Mom had the smart idea that we sleep upstairs on the air mattress so we can’t hear her. So we don’t know if she’s sleeping through the night or not, but achieving eight hours of uninterrupted sleep for the first time in over 15 months is absolutely priceless!
