    Default How r u sleeping?

    How is everyone sleeping?

    Baby girl sleeps ALL the time, but at night she only wants to sleep on me. Hence, I'm not sleeping much at all.

    Like her brother, she's a wiggle worm. Can't swaddle her because she breaks free and I found her Face covered the other day with her blanket. Scared me to death. She wiggles her way out if her sleep positioned too, lol.

    Funny thing is she will sleep so well on her back during the day, 3 hours at least

    I'm not sleeping at all. Doctor prescribed Ambien but all my friends have told me stories of sleep walking and stuff so I'm terrified to take it!

    Sleeping great here! We have had maybe two nights that weren't great, but even then they weren't terrible. Each of my babies has been a better sleeper than the previous one! I definitely know what it is like to have a baby that doesn't sleep good.

    Great!! Madelyn sleeps ALL THE TIME!! Well it seems that way anyway. During the day my girls will lug her all over the place and she just sleeps right through all of it. Funny though, if we put her down in the swing or something, sometimes she will sleep, and sometimes she will cry to be held. She'd rather be hauled around and snuggled by little hands then sleep in her swing. Then at night, I just tuck her in right next to me and she is out. She does wake a few times to eat (not really sure how much, but certainly not "a lot"), and I just latch her on and we go right back to sleep.

    Im getting a fair amount of sleep. He thinks he needs to sleep next to me in my bed and if I let him, he'll sleep about 3.5-4 hour stretches between eating (sometimes he might go longer but at 4 hours I wake him up at least until he hits birth weight and my pedi says I can let him sleep). I'm hoping to get him in his crib more in the coming week, at least starting the night there so I get a stretch without a baby on me He does pretty well at eating then going back down as long as I don't put him down - lol!

    I sleep pretty good for 9 months pregnant I think. I have been getting up more and more frequently to pee lately. It was like 3 or 4 times last night. My belly is usually sore in some various spot when I get up but I just change position and fall right back to sleep. I've only had a handful of insomnia boughts with last one being probably 2 weeks ago. I'm still really ready for a newborn though.

    Patience, I hope you can get some rest in too! I'm excited for you!!! I can't wait to meet your new little guy. At least the pregnancy discomforts will be over for you. Usually that first day you have the adrenaline of birth anyway, so hopefully that can get you through, and then maybe baby will let you get in some good sleep (usually the first day they are super sleepy!).

    Not TOO bad. We cosleep so whenever he wants to eat I just latch him on. Eventually I wake up and he isn't eating anymore LOL. He does this about 4 times a night. I know, it's not great to just let him eat and not burp, but I try to give him a little back pat before I feed him the next time. I also haven't been changing his diaper all night, unless I hear him poop.

    He's been having a grumpy period every night though, from like 8 pm to 10 pm. He's eaten, but just won't settle down and go to bed without lots of walking and rocking and cuddling. Not wonderful for me, I normally use those 2 hours to make lunches, shower, etc. Haven't been able to do that lately.

    You know, I haven't burped a baby in the LONGEST time!! LOL Unless my milk lets down super fast and I actually hear them swallow air... Kinda forgot that was part of "feeding a baby." It's just never been an issue for mine. hummmmm Sorry about the evening fussiness!! Those are the two hours I use to get things done too!
