Still in bed at 10:45am. And have no immediate plans to leave said bed. Oh wait, might get up soon to make a cuppa.
So THIS is how it feels to have no kids! It's been a while 😃 Thanks mum for taking DD for a sleepover last night 👌 Don't hurry back now.... 😉
I am holding a sleeping DD waiting for DS and DH to come back with some morning tea.
I am enjoying the silence of no DS....
I'm following his cues anyway. I can see he's tired, he needs to sleep. the fact that he's zonked out within a few minutes confirms this.
I'm not imposing some rigid schedule and then leaving him to fall asleep out of pure exhaustion after crying for 30 minutes.
he does fall asleep whilst feeding sometimes but I like to burp him a bit so he wakes up when I do that. if I put him down straight after a feed he voms a bit. so our usual routine is feed, play (as he's happy and alert and relaxed after a feed) then once I notice he's getting tired, he goes for a nap. seems logical to me and he's leading it so I trust him being able to communicate to me via these cues.
I am not leaving him screaming. he's tired, he's telling me he's ready for a sleep by the way he is crying (which I can distinguish from his hungry/dirty diaper/something is wrong cries). if I know he's tired then what is wrong with putting him down for a nap?
