Night 5

August 1, 2010

She fell asleep even earlier after the usual fussiness. I held her on my chest and rocked back and forth, then she rolled onto her side and she fell sleep by 8:05. There was standing, screaming, and crying, but it didn’t last as long as usual. She slept solidly until 12:30, when she woke up upset and I put her back on her side and held her close. She fell asleep, but kept waking up for maybe 30 minutes or so, and I’d lie her back down. I’m not sure what time it was that I nursed her because I couldn’t find my phone to check the time, but I think it was probably at around 3 or so. She woke up for good at around 6 again, unfortunately. I hope that this doesn’t become a habit.

Although I’m tired, I’m pretty pleased that she slept for more than four hours straight. This is definitely a record. I’m still not sure if the 3am-on nursing is working out, but I know that she is definitely hungry at that time. I guess that will be the next time chunk to tackle. I’m wondering if I can just nurse her that once, fully, then not nurse her again until 6 or 7.
