It's been a rough week!

2 main reasons:

1) Nathan is rejecting my boob.  My one fail-safe method of calming him and making him happy (and of course, feeding him as well) is partially gone.  Since I've started working again last week I think the increase in bottles have made him a lazy breastfeeder.  I'm hoping this is just a phase because it's really starting to hurt my feelings...even though I know I shouldn't take it personally.

2) He isn't sleeping.  Naps have always been a struggle since day one.  He was the only newborn I knew that didn't sleep all day.  When he was 10 days old, I remember him staying awake for 8 hours straight..ugh!  Now, sleeping at night has gotten worse too.  He used to only wake once per night for a feeding and then quickly go right back down.  Now he's up somewhere between 2-4 times per night!!!  Just in time for me to start working again (great timing, Nathan!).  I'm hoping this is just an extended 3 month growth spurt and he'll be sleeping through the night any day now (a mama can dream, right!!!).

Here he is 'napping' in his crib.  And another pic of the nursery if anyone is interested!!!!

I love his storyboard hanging above his crib

Otherwise, he's been pretty happy this week.  We're even hearing a few giggles.  Yay!!!

  1. Just found your blog and that is one cute little guy you have there. My babe was totally shunned my boob when I went back to work, but after a few weeks he got over it and all was well. Good luck dudette!
