Hello friends! Hopefully, once this post goes live, I will be feeling rejuvenated from a full night’s sleep. We are now a little over a week into the crib transition, and it has been a bumpy road. We had one rough night in the beginning, but after that she was sleeping through the night. However, settling her down at night is quite a task–as soon as we put her down, she cries and cries. Then, Friday night, she woke up around 2am and could not be consoled, so I finally nursed her around 3am and she fell back asleep.
Saturday night was better, but I was restless because I kept straining my ear to hear if she was making any noise. She woke up around 5:30am Sunday morning, and I felt like I didn’t sleep at all. (And it didn’t help that I started Phase 3 of the Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred on Friday, and followed it up with her Yoga Meltdown workout on Saturday–moving my body is not my favorite activity right now.)
I’m kind of at a loss. She takes great naps, and although sometimes she does get upset when we lay her down for a nap, she settles down pretty quickly. I’m holding off on giving her the pureed vegetables at dinner time now, because I was worried that might be making her tummy upset. I know she might be teething, but she also doesn’t fuss that much at any other time of the day–just at bedtime. We’ve been following the same bedtime routine for months (except for the part where she sleeps in the crib, not the rock and play), and we usually get her to bed a little after 8pm. I really don’t know what else to do at this point–moms, any advice?
Other than that, it was a great weekend! We spent time with some friends, and I shared on Instagram an extra long cardigan I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’m really excited to wear it this fall with my favorite leggings, and a pair of peep toe booties I ordered as well.
I’m also debating a faux leather crossbody, or a faux suede tote. I love the crossbody and it will be perfect for when I’m out running errands by myself, but the tote is perfect for fall and I can use it as a diaper bag. However, I kind of want to see the tote in person to see if it’s big enough. Thoughts? (Also, it’s still early access, so you’ve got to have a Nordstrom card–totally worth it if you shop there on a regular basis!)
Here’s to hoping we get some sleep this week!
