Grandpa got us started on the right foot. But after days of only a few 20-30 minute naps, and an increasingly cranky Ian, I decided to do a loose swaddle, nurse, and then put him in the co-sleeper. The result? Two hours and counting, baby!
Yes, the swaddle is still a crutch I suppose, but at least I can take a swaddle with me…the swing ain’t gonna go to Michigan with me, and they don’t make swings for toddlers (do they?). I just hope Ian’s wife won’t have to swaddle him in a queen-size sheet before he goes to bed…
Also, I just have to share the following:
Ian was conceived on 4/23/10 (we know this because I kept track of our “play” dates-there was only two, and based on size of the embryo, docs confirmed the first “play” date)
Ian was born at 4:23am
I went to the grocery store today and my total was $4.23
I should be betting or buying a lotto ticket or something, right?
