Quick Sleep Update

Michael finally got back into his routine, for the most part after being sick for a couple weeks after Thanksgiving. Now he wakes up at 3am and 5:30am to nurse and is up for the day around 7 or 7:30. One nap doesn't work too well, so we'll stick with two for now.

My attempt at teaching self-soothing is working a little, but it's also backfiring a little. Sometimes he falls asleep while nursing and when he doesn't, he plays around for a bit then fusses to nurse again. Exhausting! If I can see that he's really sleepy, I tell him to lie down and try to go to sleep without milkies. He usually can but not without a little crying and kicking. Sometimes it seems like he needs to let out some steam with a little cry--he usually conks out pretty quickly after.

So it's still a work in progress but progress there is.
