how do you sleep your 1 month old?
Posted November 29, 2012on:
because seriously, I can’t manage to do it stress free, for the life of me. Tim is approaching the all too familiar territory of May’s high maintenance. For example he’s so wakeful that within 10 minutes of setting him down for daytime nap, or even 2, he has been waking up consistently this week. Last week he didn’t, this week he did. Ugh. I got a cradle swing, popped him in, he slept for 2.5 hours blissfully last Friday, and hasn’t done any of that since. The most he has given me in that swing this week was 30-40 minutes, and that was only once. Even in the walking Moby, he wakes after 45 minutes. Only actively holding him would yield anything decent, and that means whoever’s holding him has to be constantly vigilant, can’t doze off because he stirs a lot… Swaddling barely makes any difference. I have 2 weeks to figure this out before both mother in law and Thien leave. Do I just have to come to term with catnaps for the time being?
May ate snacks at school today. Cheerios and 10 grapes, she said, because she was hungry and told her teacher in so many words. That’s a first.
