I hate dealing with a crying baby. You know, Alex was SOOO good for the first like... 5 weeks. Then I think he realized how much I loved him, and he realized his love for his mama and well... now he's a spoiled brat LOL
No, really, he's just a baby who wants to be cuddled (all the time) and I mean, I can't blame him for that. However, a super cuddly baby equals a super exhausted mommy and I just can't get anything done anymore!
You see, I've gotten him used to being with me all the time. And as much as I love him, I have two other kids, a husband and a self to take care of too! So I have to do something. I think it was about this age that I had to let Marah cry it out too. She took to it like a pro, only going through about 2 days of really screaming before she figured it out and was able to fall asleep on her own. Somehow I don't think it will be as easy with Alex, but maybe he'll surprise me.
Basically he has grown accustomed to sleeping on me, even at night. I can really only get him to sleep in his bed at the start of the night (only after falling asleep while nursing) and when he wakes up in the middle of the night to be fed he will not let me lay him back down. He instantly wakes up and starts fussing. So I just have taken the easy route of the moment and held him on my chest where he falls asleep almost right away. I also will sometimes lay on my side and feed him which lets me half sleep and then he goes to sleep that way. Basically let's just say I have become a human pacifier.
Bored yet? LOL sorry, but I want to document this. If you don't want to read it I won't be offended ;)
I don't know if I'm quite ready to start, but I'm thinking about it.
I'll post pictures of the sweet boy in the morning. I'm too tired to deal with it right now.
