Baby Blues

A good friend of mine had a baby recently & she wonders why people use the term "sleep like a baby" to mean "sound sleep"; when in fact babies wake up every two hours.

:) because that child is absolutely peaceful during that span of time, without any worries, and without any reservations!

Radha - Being a new mom, I couldn't agree more with your friend. Babies sleep are full of interruptions and their sleep cycles are much shorter when compared to adults. I guess the term is more of a misnomer.
