  • It's another one of those lies they tell in order to ensure continuation of the species. If women knew what babies were REALLY like, they'd refuse to have 'em.

  • I think slept like a baby means you were able to fall asleep, a comfortable sleep without stressing or thinking about anything. All babies have to do is sleep. So when you sleep like a baby you sleep very peacefully. That is what I always thought it meant anyway.

  • How about
    "Slept like a teenager"
    Or, better yet,
    "Slept like a DAD"

  • lol, babies wake up every 2 hours.. ? My son woke up like .. wait he didn't sleep unless he was on my boob so I cannot comment. I do know that I gave up not co-sleeping after the 3rd day.
