Okay I am not sure how to put the tickers in the post, but since it is now April, I figured we should start a new thread.

Ah, memories of one of us holding Elena while the other ate dinner are flooding back! I've even held her over my shoulder and ate dinner with one hand standing at the counter before. Don't worry - those days do pass! Good luck trying to get your boss to let you work from home

Kelly - do you think you might have the reverse problem - that she's not getting enough sleep in the daytime? At her age, she should have one to two daytime naps totalling 2-3 hours sleep, and then 11-12 hours at night. When a baby doesn't get enough sleep in the day, it

Christine- My dh and we took turns for the longest time. Sometimes we still do and he'll be 5 months next week. It seems he gets fussy at dinnertime no matter if I feed him before or not. Not sure why. I am hoping as he gets older and gets to eat more and with us it will get better.

Amy- David is going through sleep issues too. But I think it has to do with he has a cold and can't breathe. At 3 months he was sleeping through the night (about 9-10 hrs). Now I'm lucky if he sleeps 6 hrs in one stretch. And this week he doesn't want to sleep in his crib or bouncy chair probably because he hasn't felt good from the cold but I'm not making a habit of him sleeping on me so I am putting him in his crib and he needs to learn. He's put himself to sleep before so it's not like he can't do it. On top of it, I gave him 7oz last night before bed and he goes to bed at 8:30 and he woke up at 11:30 hungry again. I wonder if when I give him bottles I should give him more during the day so he's not so hungry at night. I breastfeed him during the day and when I'm not working but give him bottles at night because it makes him sleep longer since he tended to fall asleep on my breast before he was full and then woke up an hour later still hungry.

Anna I wondered about that too. I know that most babies Elena's age nap at least a couple of hours during the day, and we're lucky if she gets 2 half hour naps. You wouldn't think half an hour woud be enough to get a good restful nap but it seems to do her just fine. I don't know how to teach her to nap longer though - when she wakes up she wakes up!
