Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
Just changed and fed the lil' guy and now pumping. I'm hoping that he will sleep for a few hours. I've been trying to make sure I get good burps before I put him down again or else I'll just see him kicking up his legs and kinda restless.
He's been gassy lately and its hard cause the guy HATES to burp! If anyone has any tricks please let me know--but he's been hard to burp since he was born (even the NICU nurses said so)!
I usually do low pats followed by circle rubs and that does it. Is it bad that I can tell when my husband burps cause he's restless? Oh well enough blabber--I'm going to try and go back to bed!

Me unfortunately! I thought V was finally learning to sleep through the night.
He went down earlier than normal tonight---around 9:30. Slept till around 1:00 when he was just fussing. Did the paci thing and he slept till around 3. Then DH got up with him----nice right? He's away all week working so he thought he'd "help" tonight----so when he went in didn't like that LO was swaddled one arm in and on his side----so he loosened his swaddle (and arm came out!) and laid him on his back. Know what happened??? LO is up and fussing for last hour. Thanks DH.
He said it freaked him out that he was on his side and LO didn't like swaddle . Really??? He slept from 10:00-4:00 like that all week while you were away and didn't budge. AND---he can't roll over when he has receiving blankets rolled and blocking him.
GRRRRRR......I am grateful he tried to help but now I'll be up for the rest of the night with a fussing LO----and just so you know----DH is snoring next to me.
Oh beautiful 4 am how I am coming to see you as an old friend. CJ had his bath at 9 and fought sleep until midnight. I am so glad at least that he slept 4 hours (we did not get any 4 hour stretches last night and today we are traveling 4 hours to nj so I need some sleep).
So here is my dilemma I go back to work on the 11th and I have mega fear about a decrease in supply (I EBF). I am contemplating setting an alarm for 4 am to dream feed and pump a little extra in order to maintain supply. I'd be looking at a schedule like 4 am bf, 7am bf, 830 pump, 1230 pump, 3 pump, 4 bf, and bf on demand till bed hopefully round 10 ish. Is the waking for the 4 am feeding overkill? Should I jut let things happen naturally and only force the 4am if I notice a dip (at the moment cj usualy still wakes once a night, i'm thinking more i in terms of when he is sttn) What would you do?
