Cranky in Her Sleep

It’s been a very rough start for V’s sleep so far. This is also the exact same thing as last night. She went form with a fight with M so I had to go in and nurse her after i put Z down.

By the time she fell asleep, it was 7:15pm. She was in the carseat. 7:45pm, she woke up with an angry cry so I went in and picked her up and rocked her. That didn’t work so I gave her the breast. I put her in the crib after she fell asleep.
8:10pm, she cried out again. Pick up, breast, now she’s in the carseat.

I can’t even think of sleeping because I anticipate her waking up every 20-30 minutes. I’m not sure what’s going on but it looks like M is going to the Hillcrest Info session alone tomorrow night. There ain’t a way V will sleep through the first 3 hrs without waking and crying.

Adventures in Sleeping

Tonight, we tried M’s suggestion of half swaddling V for her sleep in the crib. Just like Z used to be, she has been asleep with her arms free since 7pm. Last 4 nights, she slept in the carseat. I’m so glad she’s able to lie down tonight.

Both kids went to bed for 7pm and its so nice to have that time after to do whatever we want. I’ve recently discovered Prison Break (2 nights ago) and can’t stop watching it. Last night I had to stop myself from watching another episode so I could catch extra sleep. And I did. I woke up feeling a lot better.

It’s already 9pm. I’m going to watch another one and go to sleep. I watched one earlier with M.

Last night was rough – but I expected it. 40 min into her sleep, V woke up. She must woken up 7-8 times altogether. Around just after midnight I decided to unswaddle her. She has never been happier. The rest of the night she was waking up because she was learning to sleep without a swaddle. I’m glad I did it sooner than later.

Her 1st nap was short -35 min only. But when we went to IKEA, she surprised us by sleeping past 2 hrs! I couldn’t believe it. She went down again just a few minutes ago for her 3rd nap. It’s exhausting – these are the things I don’t seem to remember when Z was little.

Z woke up early again – 5:25 am. He didn’t have much of an appetite all day. I felt him and he was warm. Runny nose is also in the picture.
