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 I’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.
We’ve been trying to put Henry down anytime from 7 – 9 PM in his crib to get him accustomed to sleeping in his room, and then he gets transferred to his pack ‘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 – 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 baby…. a beautiful sight.
I know babies just sleep in waves – last week, he was going all night with only one wake-up – so I’m hoping there is light at the end of the tunnel… 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? Let’s raise our coffee mugs in a toast to sleepy babies tonight!
