When space aliens don't visit at night

... the world is completely different. When she doesn't nurse over and over in the middle of night, but then still wakes up and just does NOT go to sleep... the next day just goes so much better. I can think through the morning nurse and get her fed on the first full-from-the-night breast much more calmly, I can think through when to switch to the other side. I can not crash at the same time as she starts to scream (and was it less than last night? maybe?), I can cluster nurse all night, and then guess what ... SHE SLEEPS again better the NEXT NIGHT!

The better it gets, the better it gets. I'm amazed how much the day before affects the next day. I always think of this journey as what affect the morning or day before has on the nightly colic-y behaviour etc but I'm always learning new things that factor into just what makes it better or worse.
