Logan will not let me sit down to rock him to sleep. I have to stand up and moving for him to fall asleep or even to stop crying. Are any of your babies like this? We have a wonderful, very comfy rocker that I use to nursery but to try to get him to sleep - it's not even an option. He is getting better about me being able to put him down in his crib almost asleep and fall asleep on his own or he whimpers for a few minutes and then doses off but sometimes I would like to use the rocker instead of having to stand. Is Logan the only one like this? And he knows if I sit down :)
Next thing is when Logan wakes up from a nap he is so upset. I think a lot of times he is still tired and sometimes I can get him to fall back asleep but usually not. So then I try nursing him, you know the whole sleep, eat, play routine, well then while I am nursing he pretty much is sleeping. He is sucking some but I feel like he isn't getting any milk. This sometimes continues for an hour or more. I know I shouldn't do that but I can't get him to wake up or eat faster. He is such a slow nurser anyways, somedays I feel like he is on my boob all day! Any suggestions on how to make him nurse faster? Is this common for younger babies and eventually it gets better? And do your babies wake up upset? Don't get me wrong he does have his play time and isn't really nursing all day. I have noticed that the night time feeding is getting shorter, so that's something.
