We all know that saying, "Sleep when the baby sleep."
If you are pregnant it's, "Better get your sleep in now."
I'm not a napper I hate naps they make me extremely cranky. This pregnancy I did quite a bit of napping towards the end. Couldn't have anything to do with that 10lb baby I was carrying could it?
Now that Sam is here and 3 weeks old (holy crap) we are still trying to figure out how to sleep.
The first two weeks it's been I stay up and let Tom sleep then he stays up and lets me. Then it turned into we'd nap on the couch with Sam while the other slept. This allowed each of us to get some sleep. I was going to put uninterrupted sleep but you know I'm breastfeeding so I won't know what a full nights sleep is like for at least a year but probably much longer.
Sam is a pretty good sleeper when he's being held or he's laying in my bed.
I'm working on getting Sam to sleep in his playard. He isn't a fan yet. He will now sleep in my bed flat next to me all night so the last two nights I've actually gotten some decent sleep.
Much better than being awake for 40 or so hours like we were coming home from the hospital. *yawns*
I'm really not a fan of bed sharing. Mainly because it means one of us is on the couch. I enjoy sleeping next to my husband. It's been 3.5 weeks since Tom and I were asleep in the same bed at the same time. It's almost like we aren't even married anymore hah.
We need a bigger bed.
Hopefully the next couple days I can get him sleeping in the playard next to my bed for at least part of the night. I don't think it'll be that big of an issue he's sleeping for about 3 hours at a time during his deep sleeps.
This is a fantastic thing. Lucas did not sleep that long until he was 6 weeks old. Even then it wasn't common.
Sam is a great baby we are so in love with him. Lucas is so excited to be over his sickness, that luckily Sam and I didn't get so I'm hoping I gave it to them and won't have to be sick again. Now Lucas can touch and love on his little brother and he couldn't be happier. I'm just happy to stop saying "Don't breathe on the baby!!"
He is adjusting pretty well to being a big brother I'll have another post about that later on.
I'm finally getting chances to sit and blog again. I've missed it. I'm commenting on the ones I can read. If you have CAPTCHA I can't comment from my phone :/ but I'm reading everyone's blogs! It's been one of the nicest things to do while I'm stuck to a chair nursing.
