sorry this is a bit late - my DD! is still a nightmare and im so busy disciplining her!
have you tried wrapping him semi tightly and placing him in the bouncer, then turning on ABC2 - "in the night garden" at 630pm - when they are tired it helps if their arms aren't flapping everywhere and sometimes they sit contently for a while. theres something mesmorising about in the night garden for little ones. alternatively baby einstein DVDs are good too....
but in the end 5-630 is a good stretch for a little one too.
AFM: my little elizabeth sleep from a 8pm feed to 3 am - then awake again at 7 am.... shes done this for the last 3 ngihts so im hoping its a pattern but who knows - they change all the time!! however im not getting any sleep as my DD1 devil is up til 10pm screaming and causing mayhem - stomping feet, crying, broke her door the other night - she is way out of control and we are at a loss. weve tried everything, reward charts, the hard line, specail mummy time, walks, treats, but not yet resorted to spanking but ive contemplated it ti be honest.
for those of you struggling with feeding - elizabeth is 6 weeks now and ive just got the breast feeding to be painfree on the right and only slightly painful on the left. it is a hard struggle and i guess my only advise is set a time limit to how long you want to keep trying for, and if its still not working - say at 10 weeks, then consider giving it up....??/? My feeding experience with DD1 was horrific and i wish i handt perserved so long at it as it did tarnish my early memories of my baby.
have a good day girls - try to get some rest.
