Are all babies like this?

My daughter usually gets two naps a day, which equal about three hours, and goes to bed at 6:30 every night. Saturday my mother and I took her out all day. She had one 1 & 1/2 hour nap. We went out to eat at 6 and didn't get home till 8. My daughter didn't throw any fits, cry or act up in any way. I'm just wondering if I have a really laid back baby, or are all infants this resilliant?

  • my baby is the same way...we go to nanas on saturday nights and she watches Queen videos with her so we go to bed a little later than usual but she's pretty adaptive. kinda like whenver she gets tired she'll start rubbing her eyes, I'll nurse her then she'll fall asleep, whether it's at 8 or 10.sometimes we're busy and she doesn't get all her naps either.

  • Yes, I think you have a laid-back baby... for now. My son was never that easy. But then again, he is a high-maintenance baby and extremely busy. My friend's daughter, however, is so laid back and goes with the flow. She never fusses, she never protests, and she can doze off anywhere. She's not even a month older than my son. Sometimes I feel as if it's not fair... but I still think mine is more fun though. ;) However, I am extremely fortunate that my son has always been a pleasure to take out to public places. Easy... no. Fun... yes! Just thank your lucky stars and enjoy your little one.
