Well Ike did NOT sleep well last night. I’m not pleased. He just didn’t want to be put down so I made up my mind that there will be no more holding him while he sleeps during the day. He can’t get used to that! It’s hard because it’s nice to cuddle the little rascal while he sleeps but I’m not into creating bad habits right now. I’m still debating weather or not I’m going to really use the soother much. I don’t know if he’ll need it. It’s come in handy a few times already. I guess if he becomes a bad sleeper then I’ll use it. It was a good tool to get Silas to stop nursing at night but then he needs it all night long now. It’s annoying. I’m also trying to get him to nap without being swaddled sometimes too. Silas was wrapped up until like 7 or 8 months, I was too chicken to get him out of it. When I did, it was the easiest thing ever.
Seeing that I had a bad sleep last night, my emotions are somewhat wacky again. I’ve been weepy today. I think that right now I wont talk to my Dr. about it because I should give the hormones some more time to level out. I have tons on my plate right now with a new baby and the move and whatnot so of course I’ll be out of sorts. So if I’m still feeling crappy after we’re in our new home then I’ll for sure do something about it. I’m hoping the crappyness will not last that long. I really hate being at the whim of a stupid chemical balance. Goodness I’m tired. Right now I don’t look at Isaac and resent him or anything. That’s good. Good thing he’s cute.
Ike’s bum is being SO incredibly slow to heal, perhaps I should try and have him naked more. His poor little bum bleeds every time I have to get the poop off of it. I try not to wipe but it needs to get clean. 🙁 I feel so bad for his little bum, I don’t know what else to do for it. It’s so hard to heal something that’s always wet. I bet if the weather were more dry it would heal up better. Stupid living in a rain forest.
Roselle (MIL) came over today and I got to have a nap. I didn’t want to get out of bed after that. So cozy. There was also a little baby waiting to suck on my very sore nipple, I wasn’t looking forward to it. She’s about to take Silas for a stroll outside. I should get outside at some point today as well.
Anyway, I’m off.
