Like most moms I check on my kids throughout the night to make sure they're covered up not contorted like babies are in their sleep. Well when I did a check in tonight I put my hand on DD's back...and it wasn't moving... I called her name a few times, progressively getting louder. She didn't respond or move at al....I'm pretty sure my heart ceased to beat at this point. I shook her leg a little leg and said her name again...All of these horrible things we've all seen and heard on TV ran through my mind....THANK GOD SHE MOVED!! I guess she was just in a deep sleep but geez...my hands are still shaking....Anyone a neurotic bed checker like I am? Or am I a total whacko?
Wow how scary! I am so glad she is Okay.
I am so a neurotic bed checker and my DS is almost 8 weeks. When he sleeps in his bassinet I am up about every 30-45 minutes checking on him. He is up at least 2 times a night so I am usually on the couch so my DH isn't woke up by his noisy sucking sounds.
As far as an age to stop looking in on them at night I know my mom checked on us right before she went to bed till the day we turned 6 yrs of age. (she had 8 children), I know that it is a different age for each momma. Me probably the day he moves out of the house. :)

This is NOT to Worry you but I am going to make a suggestion and its one that the nurse in the NICU told me before my DS was discharged to come home.
The nurse said when keeping an eye on my DS at night IF I we have a night where this exact thing or something similar were to happen to make note of date and time and if the room was chilly or to warm so I can remember to tell the DR if it happens more than once so they can rule out sleep apnea.
Again Just a suggestion, but I think your right probably just gonna be a deep sleeper as she grows up.
