It always happens. Whenever you discuss something, it always comes up within the next few days, when you've never talked about it before. Then you read about it in the sunday papers. I can't beleive you've bought this up Shona!!


We came to the conclusion about this statement the other night (over a glass of wine or two) that it is valid. When babies do go to sleep, they sleep so deeply, that you can vacuum around them and they don't wake up.


Only yesterday Stefan fell asleep in the shopping trolly at Sainsbury's. I did a full shop. Loaded the car. Transfered him to his car seat. Drove home. Put him in his cot and still he slept.


Of course, there is no reference to the the length of time/predictability of sleeping like this!


I'll go and read the rest of your post now! :D
