I was getting so nice and spoiled with Char going to sleep around 8pm and not waking until 7am. I would still wake up once in the night out if habit or my mommy ears would hear a noise, but overall it was bliss. Pure bliss.
She's 3 months today and must be having a growth spurt. The past couple of nights I have been up every couple of hours with her. And omg is she eating for two?! Hee hee.
Can't wait for this one to be over so we can both get some sleep again.
I've tried peek a boo but she doesn't seem to care for it.
Practice holding a rattle
Look at a soft patterns book
What do you do?
I've just started this the past few days. I like that it's all about a routine rather than a schedule. Char does really good about sleeping through the night but only naps on me or in her stroller. The first couple of times getting her to sleep in her crib have been hard. Hopefully it will get easier in a few days. I definitely think it's worth trying.
Just wondering if anyone else has had success with this method?
Now that I am up all hours of the night I swear he doesn't stop farting!!! How can one man fart so much, lol! Ah the joys of marriage.
Usually she wants me to hold her upright and walk around, plus she likes to nap on me instead of in her bed. I've tried bouncy chairs and swings she hates them. So I bought a playgym and she Looooves it!!
It has lights and songs and rainforest animals. She's now happily kicking and wiggling in it and I can actually get things done! I'm soo excited about this, best $70 I've ever spent!
I'm reading the book Baby Sleeps Tonight which teaches you how to place baby on a feeding, nap, awake, sleep schedule but I'm starting it at almost 6 weeks.
It says to feed for 30 minutes then keep her awake for 30 before setting her down to nap. But she only ate 10 mins and doesn't want anymore. I kept her awake 30 now I'm trying to get her to nap and she of course cries when I lay her down and only wants to sleep in my arms.
Do I let her cry and hope she falls asleep? Not sure what to do to get her on a schedule!
Ugh I knew we would probably have to move after the holidays but now it looks like we need to be out by Oct 1st!
Our lease isn't up until Nov but I was thinking we might go month to month and wait till the holidays were over. Just got letter from mgmt and they are raising our rent $200, nice move in a down economy, and saying our lease is up on Oct. I can guarantee their month to month price will suck.
So now I have to either try and fight with them about the lease and find a place by Nov or suck it up and find our dream place in just three weeks!
Moving is such a pain and I'm thinking it's not going to be easy house hunting with a newborn.
Just had to get that off my chest. Sigh . What do you need to rant about? Get it out!
I'm realizing that if I ever want to leave the house again I'll have to nurse in public. I'm not into the traditional nursing covers though.
I found a nursing hat made by MoBoleeze. It goes on the babys head and has a wide brim that covers the breast. Do any of you own one or have you used one? Just wondering your opinion on it.
At 12:30 she started futzing around in her crib so I put my breast friend pillow on and got her out.
It's now 1:10 and she is still sound asleep on the pillow in my lap! Garrrrgh I could have gone to sleep at 11:30 and had a nice little nap. Tricky mean little baby!
