the sleeping got much better yesterday. I didn’t touch any caffeine contaminated drink/food and I think Sofia is getting back to her normal self! 🙂 I hope it’s really the caffeine, we will see how it goes for few more days! hopefully we found the “convict”.
yesterday morning I took over the shift at 3:45am. I slept almost 7 hours so by the time I woke up I couldn’t go back to sleep in my room. Sofia started to make noises, I run to the nursery and she stopped. I came back to my room, the moment I lied down, the cry came out of the monitor again. I run back to the nursery and I stayed! since the room was dark and she was facing inside, I still watch her face through the monitor although I was just beside the crib! 😯 obsessive mom, here I am!
after another feeding session I carried her downstairs to have breakfast with us. she looked comfortable in the lounge
I had a egg white cheese Sandwich for me with a decaf chai latte
shortly after that, another feeding and hold her up for 30 min. put her down in the crib, waited 5 min, still asleep! YEY! mission accomplished.
I went to the studio to blog while checking her out on the monitor
she made noise several times but with the eyes closed so I didn’t run to her and let her settle down by herself.
she napped for 1.5 hrs!!! 😆
more feeding and holding, but this time she didn’t want to nap in the crib, so I hold her while she slept
you got to do what you got to do to make the baby sleep!
lunch time came and I made a quick easy meal
salad with grilled salmon and a corn
after lunch we went to Sarah’s baby shower
the moment I started driving, Sofia started to sleep
and she slept the whole afternoon while we were at the party! thats almost 3 hrs!!! and furthermore, the music and the chatting was loud and she didn’t even moved. I offered herd breast once, she ate for 10 min and went back to sleep. I was telling friends that she was sleeping well these days and nobody believed me! Sarah joked that I should take some Nigerian music to play at home! 🙂
look how comfortable she slept on my lap.
While she slept, we ate Nigerian food.
Since I was quite full when we got home, I made a light dinner
sauté squash with mushrooms and celery with the olive preserve, and a corn
oh….I’ve missed this olive preserve, it’s so good for any stir fries
after we ate, we gave Sofia a full bath in the bath tub! it was her first real bath and she enjoyed a lot! 🙂 I think we will bath her every day as a night bed routine.
after a long nap in the afternoon I was afraid she wouldn’t stick to the 8pm schedule. I finished nursing her around 7:45, hold her for 15 min and she still seemed unsettled. I didn’t know why, so I tried the white noise, I turned the sleep sheep on, and a minute later, she closed on her eyed and settled down on my shoulder. I hold her for a another 15 min and she wad in deep sleep. I out her down in the crib, and she didn’t even moved a bit. 😆 Lesson learned, white noise works!!!
