Baby sleep

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I figured something out.

I can't put him down when he's sleeping because after about 20, 30 minutes he wakes up.

 

I think he gets most of his nutrition by sleep eating. It's the only time he's not distracted. He can get a few good nursings in, but usually only when he's nursing to sleep. He eats frequently while sleeping - even during naps.

 

I think it's cool, actually. I'll get over that soon, I'm sure ;) I just like that he can get what he needs even if it takes eating while sleeping.

 

So adults who "sleep like a baby" will be very fat, if they sleep like mine ;)

LOL- same-he's too curious to eat much during the day- too much to look at!! Wish i could master sleeping through the ever-increasing pm feedings, though....

Maybe some kind of hose attachment so they can "nurse" without you having to move ;) Like a beer hat!
