Sleeping on Their Own

Last night was the first night V slept Advil-free. She made it from 6:30pm to 1:00am, stirring only to eat and immediately returning back to sleep. Then she woke again at 5:20 am and I fed her and put her back awake. She sucked on her hands and rubbed her eyes when she got tired and went back to sleep at 5:35am, only to be woken by Z screaming at 5:55am. Now M is in her room rocking her.

Z started screaming around 5:20am. I suspect he has been up since 5 am. He got up and screamed 3 times and he’s back lying down again. Maybe this time he’d gotten the message that we are not coming to him at all and hopefully he’ll sleep for at least 30 minutes. We’ll see.

Sleep Anomaly

Last night I woke up at 2:40am and panicked because V was still sleeping. She had gone for 8 hrs without a feed and I worried. I also was so engorged that I leaked onto our bed and had to express milk because she would not latch. After 5-7 min of expressing, she finally ate but it took her a while to go back to sleep. In any case, I guess the Advil did work.
Tonight, we gave her a dose as well, but she’s going to be sleeping in the crib instead. We’ll see how it goes. I hope she sleeps like last night.
