my first parenting post... total n00b, I know. :lol:


Ana was supposed to go back to bed after her 2am feeding on SAT night / SUN morning.

she was fussy until we changed the diaper at 3, and again at 3:30, and again at 4. I got her back to sleep somewhere between 4:45 and 5:00, just for her to get up 30 minutes later to eat again. :lol:

yesterday was a day of fussing/whining/screaming/not sleeping... around 10:15 last night she finally settled in and Lisa says last night was much better.

ooof, I want a mulligan on yesterday. :lol:

As much as you want them to stay small and cute they really are a lot cuter when they start sleeping through the night :heart::lol::heart:

Well there's your first problem right there!! Don't you know that kids especially babies, NEVER do what they're "supposed" to do? :rotf:

as soon as you get used to a pattern, they will break it. you get some good, consistent sleep again in a couple/few years ;)

How old is she Jme? At 4 months we did the "Ferber Method" and it worked like an absolute charm for both kids. They both sleep through the night without trouble now.

swaddling is like a miracle. we had to swaddle jeremy until he was almost 5 months old -- each time he would twitch in his sleep, he woke himself up. :crazy:

Hang in there J-me. Another month or two and things take a turn back for the much easier.

Oh Jme! Check out the swaddleme! Life saver! We were able to swaddle Oliver until 6 months in it :) He started sleeping through the night at 8 weeks. And there's no work to it, velcro was my best friend :)

Our son is two and sleeping is still a struggle. I will say it is easier now than when he was an infant! But I have been tired for 2 years pretty much!:dunno::coffee:
