My child must be the most stubborn child alive.
Yes. I have unswaddled him. He hasn’t been swaddled for 9 days/nights. Has he slept well?
HELL TO THE NO!
Does he act like he will eventually sleep well?
He is getting better about going down to sleep. Yes, I am still guilty of rocking him to sleep, or letting him go to sleep on the boob. I’ve come to realize that I like it that way, and so does he. I’ve tried letting him cry it out. He is stubborn, and will just cry his heart out for as long as I leave him alone, whether that be 15 minutes or 1 hour. He is more determined than I or C-Dub. Neither one of us can stand to hear him scream so pitifully for so long, so…….
I just want him to get back to sleeping for more than a two hour stretch. And back to napping regularly during the day.
My mother was here this week. She, who makes the most wonderful macaroni and cheese, the most wonderful buttermilk biscuits, the most wonderful meatloaf. OK. my diet went out of the window. I am revamping and decided that weight watchers isn’t working for me. I don’t have time to stop and look up points. Mrs Jones has suggested using Nutrition Data . I looked into it and they do take breastfeeding into account when calculating your calories. According to this site I need 2510 calories to maintain my weight.
So, I am going to try 2000 calories first and see how that goes. I think that I’ll try to stick closer to 1800, but I’ll allow for 2000.
Otherwise, life is good. Pookah has found his voice and loves to babble away at us. it’s like he’s holding a conversation and wondering why we don’t understand him! He’s still refuses to crawl, but he will leap or turn over to try to get to something or someone he wants. Solid food is going very well. We’re up to two meals a day, and he will finish a whole jar of food in one sitting. And poop…….Let’s just say that solid food poop is another story all together. It’s like MAN poop in his diaper. NASTY.
Anyway, its after midnight. C-Dub just put Pookah down about a half hour ago after his first wake up. I should go to sleep before he wakes up again……..
