It’s 2am and Lady Jr is finally asleep again after rocking and holding her for an hour. She’ll probably be up again soon because we’re going to hit the 3 hour marks from her last feeding shortly.
Dr Lady goes back to work on Tuesday and I’m more than a little afraid. My parents are coming to help, but they’ll only be available during the day (like sane people). I was hoping we’d have sleep a little more worked out by now, but Lady Jr will. not. sleep. in. her. crib. She’ll sleep in the baby box, if it’s in the living room. But even duplicating every condition and putting the box in the crib, she just won’t. We got her to sleep for a little while in the bouncer in the crib (mattress out for a more stable surface), but here I am again in the living room just a few hours later with her on my chest watching Netflix and bouncing, bouncing.
I don’t know what to do about sleep and now she’s started fussing/crying whenever she’s awake. I know that over the next few weeks she’s supposed to get fussier, but I didn’t expect so much so soon. So of course I’m questioning everything we do and wondering if there’s something wrong. Or is she just a normal baby? Google says both.
She’s eating and pooping well, so I’m not worried about her health. I’m just tired. And I keep googling when does baby sleep longer and when does this get easier?
I guess it’s good I got used to sleeping in 2 hour chunks while pregnant.
