This little guy
has been making me lose sleep in a big way.
He looks so cute and innocent
and acts so tired!
But then he’s up, two hours after I put him down for bed. And then three hours after that. And then two hours after that. And again. And again.
Yeah, I don’t know what’s up with that either.
So a few days ago I started sleep training. Like clockwork, he was up at 10:30 looking for a snack. I picked him up, soothed him without nursing him until he calmed down, and put him back down. And he screamed like I had poked him with a pin or something. Repeat about 12 times until he finally stays calm and falls back asleep. I did nurse him at 1:30 (another of his self-designated feeding times) because it had been 6 hours since I nursed him last. But then he was up again at 3. And at 4. And 5. And 6. Oh boy.
It’s gotten a little bit better each night. Last night he slept six hours straight without waking up, and then another 4. Which would have been awesome, had I been able to sleep the same amount of time. But nope. Last night I was woken twice by this guy:
And once by her:
So I was still up about 5 times. Grrrr.
It has to get better, right?
At least they’re all really cute.
