I have four interesting developments that I would like your take on.....
NUMBER 1: Samuel has always fussed about having his clothes changed. However, now he cries. I try to get it over with as quick as possible, but he still struggles each and every time. I've tried singing, making a game out of it and just ignoring the drama, in the hope he will just stop. He's better if I can have him sit up, but sometimes, like with "footy pajamas" it's just easier to lay him down.
NUMBER 2: Just recently Samuel has started fussing and now crying when I lay him down to change his diaper. If you've found a way to do this standing up, please let me know. He's better if I sing while I do it, but still fusses. He's fine once I get the new diaper attached.
NUMBER 3: The good thing is that Samuel can now pull himself up, but the bad thing is that Samuel can now pull himself up! We have a routine of bath, bottle and read books, then bed. He's been going to bed around 6:30 and up until now he's always gone down very smoothly. Now when I put him to bed, he immediately grabs the rails and stands and screams when I leave the room. I'm going to keep him up a little longer say 7:00 or 7:30 and see if that helps.
NUMBER 4: Remember how thrilled I was because Samuel was sleeping 12 hours at night, well another recent development is that he now wakes twice during the night crying. It's pretty routine that it happens around 1:30 and again at 4:30. Usually all it takes is for me to put his pacifier back in and he settles right down, but that still entails Richard or I waking up! Ugghh!
SO, BLOGGY BUDDIES...WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT MY CONUNDRUMS!
