This week has been a real doozy. We have been having sleep problems for about 10 days and decided to break the swaddle cold turkey and tackle the middle-of-the-night bottle.
The first few days and nights were not good. Logan basically didn’t know how to sleep without his swaddle. On Saturday, he literally didn’t sleep all day except in the car for some short rides. He was surprisingly happy all day though. At night, he woke up 2-3 times for the weekend.
Once we got passed the weekend, he was at least falling asleep without the swaddle, but I still have to rock him almost to sleep and it has been taking up to an hour (not good). He is still waking up in the night, but we are working on the swaddle situation first.
In other baby-related news, Logan can push his upper body up like below, and is enjoying his Jumperoo much more. He has learned how to hit the floor with his feet and jump. We also tried oatmeal two times for him, but he didn’t like it, so we will try again another time. It looked pretty gross too.
Next week we are hitting the road/sky again and taking Logan to Dallas to meet all our Dallas friends. And then in a few weeks, he goes to school!
I hope to one day start cooking and baking again and making a weekly meal plan, but it’s very hard to think about that when all my daytime is spent fighting for his naps or trying to entertain him or reading about baby sleep.
We are hoping this sleep thing is just a phase and we will move past it soon! Thank you for your help in the comments and emails!
