I have a few questions and need help from my experienced mommies!
First, DS will not sleep alone, at all. He HATES being on his back, so if I nurse him to sleep and then put him in the crib/PNP he wakes within minutes. Same thing whether swaddled or not. The only places he'll sleep is on my chest (lying on his stomach) or on the boppy on his side. Obviously if he falls asleep on the boppy (after feeding) I have to sit with him since I can't let him sleep there alone...He did sleep for about 2 hours the other day in the PNP but only on his tummy, and again I had to check on him every 5 mins to be sure he was breathing ok since he was on his tummy.
How can I get him comfy to sleep on his back? I have spent the past 3 weeks on the couch with him 24 hours a day, because the poor thing needs sleep and won't sleep anywhere without me. I don't want him dependent on me forever for sleep...and we both need our rest! HELP
Also, I just used my pump for the first time, just on one side because my nipple is soooo sore there is no way I can feed DS from that side today. I only got about 1 and a half ozs.... I dont really feel like the breast is empty but I was getting sore and it didnt seem like much more was coming out... does this sound about right or should there be more?
This mommy stuff is hard work! Jason is gone until tomorrow morning and being completely alone with Jayden is a lot harder than I thought it would be, with no breaks for even a shower, etc... sigh...
thanks for the help girls!!! I dont know what Id do without uyou all
