After 4 days at home, I'm trying to remember the 'early days' with Sabina without much luck. The last couple of nights, the only way I've been able to get Anna to sleep for any length of time without squirming and fussing is in my arms. So, needless to say, I'm not getting much sleep (and am not very comfortable when I do sleep). How soon does this become a habit? Yikes. I'm trying to get her to nap in her bassinet today instead of in my lap - we'll see if it helps. My sister also brought her co-sleeper over last night - maybe that will work better than the bassinet next to the bed - we'll see.
She also hates getting her diaper and clothes changed - HATES it. I don't remember that with Bina either - I hope she gets over that soon.
We had a really rough night Thursday night - she started fussing and not being able to latch on, which led to screaming by her, crying by me - not fun. She did better last night, thank heavens.
And so it goes. Can't believe it will be a week already tomorrow. Part of me wants the next couple of weeks to fly by so she can get into more of a routine, but I also don't want to wish this time away - I just want to hold her on my lap and watch her sleep some more. :-) How do you balance it? Sleep deprivation is robbing me of reason, I guess.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Just hoping to get a shower and get out of my robe today. ;-)
