I promise that I won’t spend forever comparing child 1 to child 2, but it is amazing how different they are.
My first screamed for 8 weeks. Morning, noon, night. Slept from about 2:30am-5 am and that’s it.
This guy falls asleep at the drop of a hat. And it’s actually a problem.
He falls asleep while nursing, which isn’t great for either of us. He never gets full, I never get empty. So I’m working with a lactation consultant to fix it. A sample of my time…
1- feed baby, switching sides when he falls asleep and stops swallowing. He looks to be so content, but will wake up hungry in a few minutes!
2-baby gets a small bottle of breastmilk
3-I pump after trying to get the baby comfy and content…usually sleeping
4-In between time…last round was putting my daughter to bed.
And right after that, back to step 1!
This should be a short term thing, but right now, it’s dominating our days! So if you don’t hear a peep out of me for a bit…you know where I am.
