We all are having the sickies here this week. It was bound to happen. I’d been ignoring my vitamins for weeks, started taking them for a week, skipped 2 days, and WHAM! I get a cold. Keeley’s had some odd diapers, but otherwise seems fine, if a little tired, and Matt’s got a stuffy nose. I only slept 2 hours last night because of a runny nose and sore throat. I’m 99% positive that the sore throat is from the chain smokers downstairs, though, as Matt is complaining of the same thing and it happened to me a few weeks ago, I could barely breathe for the smoke and went and got a cough drop and it went away.
For the first time in a long time Keeley slept until almost 6 this morning. She was fairly shaking when she went to nurse. She was smacking her lips all the way into our bedroom like, come on mama, I’m starving! I certainly hope for all our sakes that she ends up liking this whole sleeping all night thing, because the last few days it’s been a 3 am feeding, and that is just plain wrong for a kid who has slept through the night since about 8 weeks of age! My only theory is that she must be growing again.
I know it’s hard, but try not to let that 3 AM thing be a trend. If it really seems like she needs to eat, try to get more food in her during the day, and a before bed snack. It can quickly become a learned behavior, and she’s the prime age for that sort of thing!! Good luck!
