Sleep Solutions Night #1

Naps – Adam snoozed from 10:30 to 11:30 and again from 2:00 to 4:30. I stayed in the room for his afternoon nap and when he started to wake up, I placed my hands on him and shushed. I had to do this a few times in the last hour but he didn’t wake up and he had a good nap.

He seems to want a 7:00 p.m. bed time, but it varies from day to day, depending on his napping. Last night, I started his bed time routine at 6:30: changed his diaper, read, nurse and rocked him until he was almost asleep and put him in his crib. The pre-bed time nursing did not go well. I don’t know if it’s his teeth or something else. He nurses frantically for a few minutes and then pulls away and cries. He is getting milk – after awhile of this my breast empties and he has milk in his mouth and doesn’t seem hungry. Asleep at 7:00.

7:49 – 7:51 – Awake and trying to break out of swaddling. Reswaddled, hands on him until back asleep.

9:39 – 10:01 – Awake. Nursed 10 minutes. Reswaddled and back in crib and mostly asleep, but very fitful, trying to break free and scratch his face and head. Falls asleep with my hands on him.

10:07 – 10:26 – WIDE awake. Papa is home and the bedroom door squeaks. Changed diaper, nursed 10 minutes, reswaddled.

10:34 – 10:40 – Awake. Damn squeaky door. Rocked back to sleep.

11:35 – Still sleeping. Undo swaddling because it is so darn hot.

12:15 – 12:20 – Awake. Damn squeaky door. Played with edge of blanket and fell asleep on his own.

12:30 – 1:04 – Awake. Tried shushing, rocking, etc. Finally nursed for 5 minutes.

2:59 – 3:24 – Awake. Nursed 5 minutes. Changed diaper. Nursed 5 minutes.

5:33 – Awake. So exhausted, brought him to bed with me. No idea how long he was awake but not long, I don’t think.

7:04 – Morning!
