Today I got to sleep in until 6:45am! Partially because after his 5am feeding, I took Squirt to bed with me.
I'm having a problem with him, though. At night (or today), I'm having SUCH a hard time getting him to sleep in his crib. I change, swaddle, feed, and rock him. He's good and asleep on my chest or in my arms...as soon as his head hits that mattress, he's awake. And not the cute, cuddly awake. No, the screaming awake that won't really stop (except for slight pauses) until I hold him. Then almost instantly, he's asleep again.
Any ideas? I can't hold him ALL days; I need/want to spend time with Moose, too.
I don't know if he'd rather sleep on his stomach. Maybe he needs a white noise machine (it's not like our house is exactly quiet with a 2-year-old running around and all his noisy toys).
I'm just frustrated. It doesn't help that Moose threw a HUGE tantrum earlier where he screamed for probably 5 minutes straight (which felt like 15 minutes) in time out. And these were little girls screams - ugh.
6:17pm: After naps, things seem to improve. At least until around supper. I got Squirt to take a nap with me and Moose was down from 1-3:30 (he totally needed a good nap). And Squirt is still wanting to be held. It's just a lot and today I feel overwhelmed. And I need a shower.
