Okay, I know narcolepsy is not funny in the slightest, but that is the only way I know how to describe it!
Every couple weeks, she goes through a phase where she will eat for five minutes, pass out, wake up ten minutes later, eat for five minutes, pass out…. (you get the gist). Last night she would eat for 20 minutes, pass out (hard), and then sleep for an hour and be wide awake to eat again. THIS is why I didn’t post a brag update about how last week she was sleeping for 4.5-5.5 hours in a row. I knew it wouldn’t last. I just got lucky! It was nice though. I was getting nine hours of sleep a night! Can you imagine what that was like after nine weeks? Ah, magical. I will just have to patiently wait for the magic to return…. cause it totally will… RIGHT?!
I was also wondering about something. Do the rest of the breastfeeders out there have one nipple that just doesn’t work as well as the other? I mean, my baby latches like a pro on both (I have been lucky with this since the day she was born), but when she latches on the right it’s just not as easy going (for either of us) as when she latches on the left. I imagine that since no two boobs are the same, that this is pretty standard, but I was just curious!
This week I plan on TRYING to get the house ready for my husbands birthday party. I’m not sure where this time is going to come from, but I figure if I can at least have the downstairs looking nice, I can block of the stairs to the rest of the house. Tehehe. The in-laws can deal with a messy upstairs, they know the deal!
I also must admit that I have failed in my attempt to start cloth diapers. Lame, I know. I am just so nervous about how big they are still. I really don’t want to have to wash everything all the time because they leaked on her, me, and her boppy. I know I’m going to have to jump in and do it eventually (my husband won’t let me forget that) but… whaaa! I am hoping to at least try a diaper a day soon. Maybe starting small will help me dip my toes in a bit. I plan on keeping her in disposable at night for a while though. Last thing I want is to have to redo her whole bassinet setup in the middle of the night!
Well, I’m off. I’m going to attempt to not pass out, since my baby is wide awake, kicking her feet, and giving me big smiles. Little cutie!
