Okay, they weren't exactly in a row, but hubby brought baby to me when he needed to nurse and burped him and changed him and comforted and played with him. I never thought he would be this great a papa! I feel so good and rested

I slept for 9 hours!!!!

DH had Quinn on the couch (where Quinn actually did sleep a fair bit, thank goodness) while I spread out it in the bedroom, I set an alarm for feeding (fighting off a plugged duct so I am "scheduling" feedings right now).

Most nights this child wails in full body fits for most of the night, despite our best efforts to clam him, so last night was a welcome respite!

Holiztic-try a ginger compress. Boil 3 T ginger in 8 cups water and apply HOT with a diaper or towel for 20 min.

I got some sleep last night too. DS nursed every 3 hours, exactly. So I am feeling pretty good. My DS1 was a screamer!!! SO I can relate. Have you watched Happiest Baby on the Block? That saved our sanity.

The swaddling is what works for us... With a cd of fan noise played non stop on a loop (ds still sleeps with the white noise on)
Dd slept 5 hours in a row last night : I woke up at 3am to her crying and I was super confused. She sleeps well at night, but normally wakes every 3 hours to nurse. Last night was strange. But I slept for 10 hours!!
