I'm having a small dilemma. My little David is quite the handful. He hates to be put down for a single second, and he gets bored after about 5 minutes of any activity, so I spend most of my time trying to entertain him. He has, though, started sleeping through the night. Currently, he goes to bed around 7:30 pm and I dream feed him at 10:00. I then wake up at 5:00 in the morning and feed him again. Sometimes I'm lucky and he goes back to sleep for an hour before I take him to day care. Most times, I'm not. Usually, as soon as the diaper comes off for the diaper change, he's wide awake and raring to go.
So, my problem is that I teach at a college. And I'm falling behind on essays and class planning because he requires so much mommy attention. He likes daddy, but he wants mommy. I know I can work on things after he is in bed, but I'm just so tired that I can't hardly think straight. I thought about going to bed when he does, and getting up around 2:30 am to begin the day. It would be the same 6 and a half to 7 hours of sleep I get every night. I would just be going to bed earlier and waking up earlier. Has anyone else tried this in order to balance baby and work? I would welcome any advice at this point.
In addition, I'm experiencing terrible hair loss right now. I've heard that some women go through this post partum? Any vitamin or diet recommendations for those of you who have experienced this? Thanks!
