DS has been up since 9:30am today. All night he kept waking up too-however since he's right next to me he wakes up cries a bit-I comfort him/feed him and he falls back asleep.
However today he is so fussy! The only way I can get him to sleep is to put him in the sling and play music. I've tried getting up and doing stuff and he wakes up. What's worse is that everything irritates him. The dog barks and he wakes up and cries. The sun hits his eyes and he gets irritated. The music I am playing stops for 5 seconds and he starts crying.
I keep trying everything. I feed him, we nurse (I still have hardly any BM-it's just for comfort), I change his diaper. I take off his clothes thinking maybe he is too hot, I put his clothes back on because maybe he is too cold. I took his temperature thinking maybe he is sick-he isn't. I want to do something besides sit here rocking back and forth. At least I am in front of the computer so I can 'net surf. However if I even move the fabric on the sling his royal fussiness starts crying!
We are having company tonight and I'd like to at least dust so that they don't think we live in cat hair heaven-O'well, I guess they will see us for the slobs that we are!
