Tuesday. Blah rainy day!! It felt like a hurricane out there today. I had Matt at home for a bit this morning, but he was sleeping in after some witching hour crying.

One parent sleeps in there and keeps a fraction of an ear open for peeps and handles the diapers, swaddling and soothing after each feeding. The […]

Wednesday. Tuesday night was amazing – in contrast to the previous 2 nights at home, he slept for THREE HOURS STAIGHT …..twice!! I couldn’t believe it when I woke up a few times to find him still peacefully snoring next to me. I wonder if my quality over quantity strategy was effective? He certainly does […]
