Sleep, sweet sleep

So Griffin is not really a fantastic sleeper. He power naps, and prefers to do so ON you, which isn't always possible. His nights are getting better though, he now wakes up twice and then nurses from 5am-7:30am (on the weekends). During the week when I get out of bed at 5:30ish he's usually up by 6 or earlier.

Bryan and I are having a bit of a rough time adjusting to the new schedule. It would be oodles easier if G would just sleep until 7, but so far no dice. I'm hoping that eventually he'll learn to take better, longer naps, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

Luckily Pen is still an excellent napper - and night-time sleeper. So we'll count our blessings on that front.

G's sleep has also been wacky because he's so very close to getting his first tooth. The bottom left tooth should be making its grand appearance any day now.

Although since we still cosleep we get just as much sleep as we did with Penelope at this age. Well, Bryan gets more and I get about the same... At 5-ish months Poe was down to one bottle a night which Bryan would handle and then I'd wake up with her at 6:30ish. With G Bryan doesn't have to get up (although he usually wakes up since it's hard to ignore the fussing) and I just have to change him and then nurse. It's really not that bad. It would be wonderful if he went down to on waking a night, but I can handle what we have now.

Gotta go, G just woke up from another mini nap.

  1. Yes, mini-naps suck. No time to really rest or recharge yourself, and when the naps happen on you...yech. At least with G, I could keep books/magazines in the car and sit and read while she finished napping (since her naps were so bad, we got a lot of them in the car). at least it felt like me time;) Hope he starts sleeping better now that tooth no. 1 has broken through.
