my ds and i have recently turned some corners! my cracked nips are healed and nursing is no longer painful! woo-hoo! he is no longer crying (screaming) from 5-9pm. he is quite content! mild, normal fussiness at times (diapers/tired/over stimulated). so...my only "issue" (if you can even call it that) is sleep.
i can't complain, really. we mostly co-sleep. he is in the co-sleeper from 8:30-11 sound asleep (his schedule...i don't mandate anything). if/when he wakes up, i change him and feed him. i put him back in his co-sleeper until...i don't know when. maybe 1-2ish? i don't look. i bring him into bed and go back to sleep. this is when we start cosleeping. he stays with me until 6:30am. nurses again and we get up. so...night time is ok. i'd love to eventually put him in his crib and sleep from 11-6:30 alone...but we'll get there...right?
so...my sleep questions...finally! they have to do with daytime. does a 10 week old have a routine in the daytime? should they? he is a little all over the place and i'm not the best organizer. i haven't figured out how to determine a nap. he is just awake/asleep/eating whenever. does this start to organize at some point? (i remember the 3-nap/2-nap/1-nap thing happening with my other 2 kids but have no idea when this begins!) i'd love some input! it would help me relax!!
