Thanks everybody for your insightful replies. I ended up getting my DS "American Idiot" and we've been talking a lot about the lyrics. He, of course, is on top of the world. Again, thanks.

I'm looking for it too - I had some friends of friends who had it a couple months ago, but my friends never caught it, and so we missed our opportunity. Let us know if you have it out there!

He has a couple of loveys that he sleeps with - he really likes holding those. And when he does wake up (after the paci comes out) I pat his chest gently, and then give it right back if he fusses....

Agreed. Boob is definitely better. He gets plenty of boob, whenever he wants it. But he doesn't really like to fall asleep nursing, unless it's in the middle of the night, or if he's way tired. Our...

Yeah, I hear you. But the 10 hour night he had was without the paci. And his sleep has been better since I've been taking it out as he falls asleep. Which may be coincidence, I suppose, it's always...

I probably wouldn't send him either. He could use the rest to recoup, and fever often comes back in the afternoon. And you really don't want to pass that on - it's no fun...
