So last night's schedule was this:
8pm - August 'sleeping' in his crib. Yipppeeeee! This lasted for 3 hours! Wahoohoooo
11:36 - Up to feed August. Nursed him in the chair in his room because I wanted to put him back in his crib after that feeding.
1:36am - the time I woke up still sitting in the chair with August. He was not ready to go to bed, he wanted to eat again. Caved & brought him into bed with me.
3:20am - up again to feed, super cranky, possibly with sore tummy?
4:20am - I had a hacking coughing fit (awesome) - woke August up (if he was sleeping, who knows. Fed him a little again.
5:30am - August awake & cranky. Needs to eat.
6:20am - More feeding/crankiness
7:12am - WIDE AWAKE with a big smile on his face. Shouts of "MAMA!" coming from the other room. And alas, another "night's sleep" is history.
I'm considering starting to wean August. I don't really want to yet...this has been hard fought, this breastfeeding & I'm loathe to give it up but I'm also losing my mind. I have this *theory* that maybe if I'm giving him a bottle in the night he'll be eating more & therefore able to sleep longer. Maybe now he's just getting a 'snack' & we both fall asleep & that's why he's up so often. I don't know. I also don't know why I think that me giving him a bottle will prevent us both from falling asleep. It didn't with Dahlia....
*sigh* I"m just so tired.
(oh also - he doesn't nap. I think he slept for about a total of 1 hour yesterday during the day. What is with this kid??)
