I promise to stop posting about cereal soon. But first! IT MIGHT BE WORKING!
Yes, after the first night of no success (with Baby Boy still waking up every two hours — or less), the second night seems to have went a little better.
Baby Boy fell asleep last night at 9 p.m., and didn’t wake up for his first feeding until … drumroll, please … 1 a.m. Woohoo!
Of course, it would have been a sweeter victory if I could have fallen asleep before 10 p.m. (why does my mind always have to race when I’m trying to fall asleep?), and if I hadn’t woken up at 12:30 a.m. when Darling Husband came home. But still, I got 2 1/2 hours of straight sleep, and for that I am very, very grateful.
Oh right, here’s the important part: I used three teaspoons of cereal (and probably five teaspoons of breastmilk — didn’t measure the milk). He gobbled it all up once again. I’m sure he would have happily kept on eating, but I figure I shouldn’t over-do it at first — what if his stomach explodes or something?
In conclusion: thank you, Nestle!
I heart cereal!
I heart sleep!
