Day 2 of no naps!

on June 12, 2013

Seriously Elvis, you’re supposed to nap in the day.

I did have a tearful moment last night despite there being no cluster feeding from 5 til 9/11pm. Instead he fed from about 8 until 11 with a huge gap where he simply cried. He was overly tired from not napping all bloody day (except the one I got us both down for). This time the tears were not because of my feeding related pain or because I was exhausted. They were simply because he wouldn’t stop crying and I had no idea when it was going to end or if the night would be difficult.

The night (after he went down gone 11) went fine and normal. 3am feed, 5am feed, 7am feed, 10am feed. With sleep for both of us inbetween. Elvis then screamed around the supermarket, fell asleep on the return journey and woke up as soon as we got home.

He has had a slight nap about 2 hours ago where I rested and he’s currently asleep on my chest. I want him to have a nap (overtired babies aren’t fun!) but I also want to rest myself so I am going to try putting him down…

Is he napping less because he needs stimulating? So far I haven’t attempted anything other than feed and change him then sleep. When does he need me to start playing with him? And how am I supposed to know?
