Thanks for your great advice!
Actually there is a dh, an awesome at that! But our timing is so off! He has been leaving for work by 6am the earliest, coming home around 4 or 5 to work on the house until 5:30 then bring ds to football from 6-8pm Mon- Fri! We just have too much going on and he is really sweet and patient(for the time being
) We have had one thing break after another around our home this year, luckily he is mechanical and can fix it himself, currently he is shoveling dirt around our house to bring the ground up to level for a soon to be wrap around deck. The deck is being put in by someone else on someone else's schedule, se he has to get it done in time. He doesn't complain about a messy house, he just wants his work clothes done. He's even made his own lunch for the past 2 months, something he hasn't done in 9 years!
We also have a 9 yr old son whom loves his lil sis and will hold her and try to amuse her for me, but she cries for me! He is a big help and will try to do other things for me, like help with laundry or make lunch
Today was good so far, she was up at 6am, nursed at fell asleep around 11(she had nursed before too), but woke when she was done
but then she played happily on floor for 40 min or so, then I held her and did stuff and she was yawning, so I brought her into the pool and walked around the pool with her(I was hot from weeding outside) and she was all relaxed, after 20 minutes she wanted out, so I held her and whiled I was drip-drying she fell asleep. I was able to change her into a dipe and put her down to nap. SHe fushed for a fraction of a second to nurse but settled down to sleep! And has been sleeping for an hour!
Do you ever push your baby to stay awake longer, hoping they'll sleep better?
