Re: Irritated and Tired
Two weeks is a great time for a growth spurt. Sometimes it can help to make sure daytime seems that way and nighttime seems that way. For example, when DS was really little, he napped in the bouncy seat in the family room and I did whatever while he was sleeping, including making noise. Then, at night, it's all business. Quite, dark, boring. It sounds like he's cluster feeding, esp. since it sounds like you eventually get a decent stretch of sleep? Here's some info on that normal infant behavior. http://www.kellymom.com/babyconcerns/fussy-evening.html
Hang in there! It doesn't last forever (although right now I remember having a very hard time with that perspective!)
DS 1/2006 9 lb. 2 oz. 22 in.
DD 10/2008 8 lb, 2 oz. 20 in.
