More often than not The Seamonkey is a great sleeper! We get in jam-jams around 7:30 and he falls asleep either on The Sailor's chest or in his swing until we decide to go to bed (around 9:30). Before I go to bed I bring him upstairs, put him into his triple-stuffed night diaper (yeah...he's a heavy wetter), nurse him, swaddle him, rock in the chair for a bit with him, and then he sleeps in his bassinet right next to me. Then he'll usually wake up around 3 am to be nursed again, and back in the bassinet he goes. Then he wakes up again around 6 which is when I just pull him into bed with me (The Sailor is already gone for work), nurse him a bit laying down, and we snuggle until around 730 when we get up and start our day.
But not Wednesday night...oh no. Little Man did not want to sleep. I don't know if it was gas, a growth spurt, or general fussiness, but that boy refused to sleep in his bassinet. So, instead of driving myself crazy I just pulled him into bed with me, especially since The Sailor wasn't there. I spent the better part of midnight to 7 am nursing him in bed, and that's why I woke up in such a disheveled state.
But, I can't stay angry at that boy for too long...
|::Yawn:: I'm sleepy since I kept Mommy up all night!|
|You can kinda tell he's smiling in this picture|
When you have a fussy baby do you pull him into bed with you? If not, how do you get any sleep on a bad night? More importantly...have you ever woken up with a nursing pad stuck to your face? haha
Until next time...
