Our little girl has finally fallen asleep in the Moby wrap. After Several attempts, including nursing down in our bed and swaddling and rocking, she is finally out. Just as I was putting her down, Z woke up. So I suggested to M to take him out to play in the snow. So they did.
I was dozing off with her suckling on me and feeling semi-successful. A few minutes later, she detached on her own and I was free to move around and get comfortable. However, as luck would have it, her big brown eyes opened and she gave me a huge smile. Back to square one, my nipples were getting sore so I decided to just swaddle her and put her in the crib.
I let her fuss and cry it out for a for a few minutes and then there was silence. I felt relieved for a moments, but not for long. 5 minutes after I had donned my snow pants, jacket, mitts to go and join the boys, she started crying. Up I went again, to rescue her. This time, I use brought her down and was going to let her stay up. What the heck, says M. Just let her stay up and see what happens.
It is exhausting though, I tell you. I’m so glad she is finally resting because I do want her to get better soon. We’ll see about sleep tonight.
