Ugh.  Seriously kid?  Seriously?  Every 2.5 hours?  The Squeaks has regressed.  For the last week he has been a pretty terrible sleeper.  He wakes up every 2-3 hours looking for food.  I’m pretty sure we were spoiled rotten by his 6-hour stretches.  One bottle in the middle of the night was so very doable.  This, however, is ridiculous.  Dad and I are so bleary eyed.  It has been hard for me to even think about writing this blog because I worry that I cannot string a group of words together.

My first thought is that he’s probably ready to venture into the world of solid foods.  I’m hoping that eating a little cereal will help him sleep longer and more soundly.  Last night we gave it a try for the first time.  Didn’t

food

clear it by the doc first.  It feels like we are breaking a few rules, but we are desperate.  Of course, there is a learning curve on using a spoon, and Squeaks has not quite mastered the concept, but he’s trying.  He seemed to like the food pretty well and even though he was deliriously tired from not napping all day, he still seemed to enjoy himself.

He’s been a pretty happy baby all day today and the food didn’t seem to upset his belly.  The food, however, did not keep him asleep!  He woke up 3 times last night and was wide-awake by 6am.  I am starting to come down with a cold, which I am sure is partially exacerbated by my lack of sleep.  This family is feeling a little desperate.  Sleep is not high on Squeak’s to-do list.  Hopefully he’ll eat more and go back to sleeping a little bit longer at night.  If not… we’re in trouble!  Anyone have any ideas?  We have regressed.
