    I think it is how they look when asleep that brings that saying on. smile

    Haha, come to think of it, you have a point there. The term now takes on a whole new meaning for me.

    That's an excellent question.I think it's because that when they are asleep you can make as much noise as you want and they won't wake up. This is available only if they are doing their nights...

    My children where always sound sleepers even the day I brought them home from the hospital. They even slept through my bf pounding on the roof all morning as he is putting on new shingles....

    how about "sleep like a rock"... What in the world does that mean?!!! Rubbish!!! Rocks don't sleep! They only "rock out"

    I tend to switch back and forth between..."slept like a baby," or "slept like a rock."  More recently, I have adopted, "she slept like a box of baby rocks."  That's just me though...

    That is funny. When a baby does sleep they are pretty hard to wake up though, but you're right - they don't sleep for too long. At least at first.

    I had a good laugh with klarawieck remark. LOL...I think because they look like a baby when they sleep. Maybe the suck on their thumb sleeping because baby does that. I'm not sure...I only tell people that they act like a baby...hardly I say sleep like a baby.
