How on earth do I have a 6 week old all ready? And how do I only have about a month left before I have to go back to work? I have NO desire to go back to work. Maybe if I liked my job a little more....But thankfully we will have amazing day care!!! Our lovely neighbor runs a daycare out of her house, and we will be lucky enough to be able to bring our lil ninja there. She is the sweetest person, we are seriously so blessed by this!
My lil ninja has such a personality on him. And I can't wait to see how it changes and evolves as he gets older. Right now, he is soooo particular when he eats. And to be honest, it makes me hate breast feeding a little bit. Man, if things aren't juuuust right, he is screaming his head off. And at 4am (or 12am), a fussy feeder is not easy for this mommy. Cries, kicking, back arching, ripping off my boobie, and just generally fussing really makes me hate breast feeding. And then there are the times where he eats so peacefully. I cannot figure out what is different or what is wrong. Darn boy is making me a little crazy!! But, when we have feed him with a bottle (breast milk) he eats like a champ. Not a fuss in sight! RUDE! =)
He also loves his routine. If after our morning feeding, I don't lay him on a blanket for some tummy time and then to play by himself, he is fussy. If we forget (aka, don't have time for) bath time, he is going to be up every two hours (so fun!). And for me? I love getting out every day. If we go for a walk, go to the store, or just leave the house for a second, that is all I need!
At 6 weeks old, he is sleeping (usually) 4 hours at a time at night. And I can't wait for him to be both more consistant and sleep in longer stretches. Once or twice a week he is still up every two hours. Ugh....those are hard day.
If anyone has any advice, I am all ears!!!
Love that little monster!!!!
*So after fussing thru his midnight feeding, 4 am feeding, and 7:30 feeding...he just ate so peacefully(9:30)!!! I wish I knew what was different. Darn picky baby!
