Oh my goodness it has been so long since I have posted. My little man likes to eat and fuss ALOT! He is doing so good and growing. He looks so long. I bet he over 23 inches now.
I just wanted to say hello. I am trying to get us into some sort of routine otherwise grumpy old man likes to stay up all hours and fuss all hours. I know many people are against routines, but I am returning to work in 3 weeks and fortunately he going with me, but I cannot breast feed for 4 hours straight and have him scream the whole day at work.
Breast feeding is finally starting to get much better. It was rather overwhelming at first to be my baby's only food source, but we are both working it out. It barely hurts anymore. His latch is good 95% of the time.
Sleep is still something I would love to have. Some nights I only get 3 hours of sleep. Any recommendations on getting him to sleep longer than 45 minutes would be appreciated.
Tomorrow we are going on a trip to Salt Lake City until Friday for work. He is coming with me. I am very nervous about it, just because he hardly ever sleeps and I am worried we will be breastfeeding non stop. Oh well I will just be looking at a lot of outdoor clothing.
Man I love him so much. Despite all my gripes.
Nice to hear from you! I am glad that breastfeeding is going better for you. I have no advice about the sleeping issue since I am a first time mom. I hope he settles down into a bit of a routine for you and you can catch more zzzz's. One of my friends swears by her sling for breastfeeding in public, people don't even notice what's going on.... maybe that would help when you are on your trip to SLC. I hope you have a great trip!
I know this isn't pediatrician recommended, but sleeping has been an absolute breeze for us as a co-sleeping family. I decided it would be ok for our family since the only mammal on the planet that doesn't sleep with its young is human beings in the western, industrialized world. You have a sense of where you are when you sleep. You won't roll on that precious little one.
