Sleeping has pretty much fallen apart in our household. Nap times happen on Mommy, not in baby’s crib. Night time used to be simple: nurse baby to sleep in my bed and move him into his crib. Now he wakes every time I move him – last night it took 2 hours to get him down. I think it’s time to stop the nursing to sleep business and have him figure out how to go down by himself. He used to be great at this, but that was weeks ago. I am not a fan of crying it out, so that is something I’m not willing to do at this point. He also sleeps in our room, which I know can be a problem. We are also not prepared to move him into his own room as that room is too far from ours. I haven’t even gotten into how often he wakes at night. Hint: It’s a lot! So, what works for you guys? I’m getting so frustrated.
Being at work is going okay for me, but is difficult for baby and Mommy. He is still resisting the bottle, but is taking it more often than he did when I was at home. Pumping at work is going well. It’s not nearly as awkward as I thought it would be. I take a magazine in (I have a huge pile at home that I’m never able to look at so it’s kind of cool to be able to catch up – I’ve missed my In Style!). My boss is so crazy cool with a flex schedule. She told me that I can work from home up to 3 days a week, just depending on my meetings and such. This week it works out that I’m WFH 3 days (today through Friday). I’m so lucky! I hope it lasts 🙂
