The Hus occasionally sleeps in the guest room the night before he has a crazy work day, leaving me to do all the nighttime baby duty. I realize some moms do night shift every night, but Kristien helps a lot, and Iâ€™m not used to handling the zombie-inducing insanity of a 10 week old baby all by myself. (Single mommas, you get mad props from me!) Also, I may just be a crybaby about sleep.
Weâ€™ve been trying to put Henry down anytime from 7 â€“ 9 PM in his crib to get him accustomed to sleeping in his room, and then he gets transferred to his pack â€˜n play by our bed for nighttime. My crazy baby did not want to sleep yesterday. I tried every shushing, rocking, and feeding technique that I could think of â€“ the only thing that worked was going for a stroller walk outside, which I know James enjoyed, too. Then H woke up every two hours to eat all night long. Awesome!
Passed out babyâ€¦. a beautiful sight.
I know babies just sleep in waves â€“ last week, he was going all night with only one wake-up â€“ so Iâ€™m hoping there is light at the end of the tunnelâ€¦ the end of the tunnel being tonight. Until then, there is always coffee!
Since breakfast was skipped in lieu of sleeping while Henry was occupied by his dad, I had brunch instead.
Any other mommas have a crazy night last night? Letâ€™s raise our coffee mugs in a toast to sleepy babies tonight!
