I want him to get here so I can take a break and do some urgent stuff that needs doing. working in the hour breaks I get when bub is asleep isn't hugely productive.
I feel annoyed now, great start to the weekend!
ETA: I wish I had time for Netflix!!

I know how it feels. It happened a lot with DS.
They have no idea about it because they are 'at work' while we are tearing our hair out because nothing is done. And you are starving. And tired. And still have not had a shower.
And they come in and say 'what did you do today? Where's dinner?'
Hope he gets home soon and you can finish what you need to do.
he took bub as soon as he got home and fed him some ebm I'd prepared. I then went and did some work and got dinner organized (boil pasta and reheat sauce lol).
boob bar is now closed for the night and I'm enjoying a big glass of red! I think I've earned it!! 🍷🍷🍷
a bit horrified. I just randomly googled cry it out method as I don't know very much about it and I'm bored drinking my coffee here on my own.
now I'm worried I've been inadvertently using it!? I put ds down for a nap and if he's overtired/a bit cranky he'll be doing those tired cries "waaaahh!!" *snort* "waaaahhhh!!" *snort snort* then just conks out. I always give it 5 mins and ensure the cries are of the tired variety and not increasing in urgency or pitch and that he quietens down. if he keeps crying past 5 mins or the cries increase, I'll go to him and see what the matter is.
is that cry it out!? I feel a bit awful now.
I just thought all bubs grizzled a bit when they got tired and needed a sleep and for that short window of time between when you put them down and when they conk out and fall asleep.
Cry it out is leaving them cry and get worked up to the point they get exhausted and fall asleep. And obviously not something you would do at 7 weeks - if at all.
You'll probably run into some very strong opinions either way on this matter - try to trust your instincts what feels right to you. If it's working for you then great - you're doing a great job!
