Thanks again for all the great replies to my last post – a bunch of you brought up putting the baby on a schedule so I am trying that from today… so far so good. I think part of my issue has been keeping her up too long between naps. I looked up info on the “EASY” schedule that Sarah and several other mentioned and had her up at 8:30 and back in bed for a nap by 10am and now at 11:30 shes still sleeping….
Had a bit of angry crying when I tried to put her down and had to use the pacifier a bit but she spit it out before she fell asleep anyways. I used to last hour and a half to get two loads of laundry done – yay!!
Will see if this continues to work for me and Sakura. Since its just the two of us now (my mom left yesterday morning) hopefully this will be a good time to implement some sort of routine.
We have devil baby visit us every night and I am sooooo done with that. Sakura is def. a bit of a grump she cries a lot and never really seems to be happy. I’m looking forward to when she starts smiling as it would be nice to have a bit of cheer from her since pretty much 85% of the time shes awake its crying. The other 10% is boob and the last 5% is her “good mood”
Sigh – parenting is hard. Hopefully I can catch a nap during my next “Y” part of the EASY schedule. I’d love to get my hands on the book – wonder if its on amazon…
EDIT – Well obviously nap 1 was a hit and consequently now on a miss.. Sakura is obviously tired shes clawing at her eyes and yawning and now screaming for the last… 40 minutes or so as all my tries at getting her down for a second nap are failing. Feels like a repeat of the night and I am so frustrated… this overtiredness seems to really get her and can go on and on and on for hours (see every night the last week pretty much)
