Em, that sounds awesome for you guys. I hope he gets it!!
Catherine, I use The Miracle Blanket. I bought 2 before ds was born, he's about 14-15 lbs now and there's still lots of room. If I had the motivation/energy at the time I would have made one, it's not hard, but in the end, it was definitely worth every cent. We still swaddle for *every* nap and nighttime.
As for me, I *think* I've figured out this hourly nightwaking my ds has done since a couple weeks old. He wakes up crying at 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 pretty much every single night
: I put two and two together and figured out he needs to burp an hour or so after feeding. So after his 2 am feed, he wakes at 3 needing to burp, but I end up feeding him, so he wakes up again the next hour and once again I feed him etc..
Last night, he went to bed 9ish, slept for about 3 1/2 hours, then after his midnight feed, I sat up and burped him and he slept through until 4 am! I fed him at that time and an hour later he was up doing the "I need to burp cry"
weird, this baby of ours
Slightly related, I think I need to have someone check his latch. He is constantly clicking and taking in a lot of air while he nurses. I think I'll attend a LLL meeting in a couple weeks. It'll be nice to talk to other nursing moms, too.
Crazy how three kids later, there is still so much to learn. lol
So glad I joined this ddc. It helps with the loneliness IRL.
to everyone..Hope are babes get back on track with sleeping.
Have a good day!
