I ususally just read the posts, but thought i'd chime in this time!
I am glad to hear we arent the only ones with sleep issues. Although I am sorry for all of you.
Nathan is in the dont put me down club too. BUT only if i take him upstairs to his bassinet. He will sleep in the swing, a bouncy seat, on the couch, on me moving around and doing stuff, etc, but not in his bassinet unless he is REALLY sound asleep before i put him down.
I am wondering if it is too quiet upstairs. I play a CD of rain to make some white noise, but.. who knows!
He is also drooling and chewing like crazy. Sometimes I am afraid he is starving! It is so hard for me to tell if he is hungry or just needs to suck or chew. My first was bottle fed (on demand for the most part, but still differnt than BFing) so i am so new to this on demand bfing thing. I swear sometimes that is all we do in a day. But i keep thinking that someday he wont need it anymore and i will miss it/him.
Oh and he also sucks his arm!!! He gave himself the biggest hickey last week!
He sleeps in the bassinet right beside me, but he is such a quiet baby. He wakes up and sucks his arm, fingers, his thumb all the way to his hand, etc... before crying. I usually wake up to his slurping noises
but not always
I am glad he doesnt have to cry a lot, but i feel bad i dont always hear him.
I started back doing my candle party business but with bfing we (dh and I) have decided i should cut back and only do afternoon parties. Nathan wont go to sleep for dh. Which makes me happy and sad at the same time.
Well, i think i am gonna try to finish up some things before Nathan wakes up again!
