October - 20, Mon, 2014

Monday, 20th October baby woke at 6am and refused to nap, and was hyper happy all day, high from tiredness. When he finally slept, I finsished reading Elizabeth Pantley's The No-Cry Sleep Solution.

October - 17, Fri, 2014

Friday, 17th October we may have found a new tooth in baby's mouth which might explain his fussiness yesterday. I also began to read Dr. Sears' Baby Book which made me regret my previous attempts at using Cry-It-Out method on baby to get him to sleep.

October - 16, Thu, 2014

Thursday, 16th October it was especially difficult to put baby to sleep, he was being especially fussy and waking up very frequently. Didn't help that my coughing kept startling him.

October - 15, Wed, 2014

Wednesday, 15th October baby woke at 6:30am ready to play while I was coughing away, still feeling poorly. Really tricky to put baby to sleep when I keep coughing and waking him up. Thankfully Peter took care of baby so I could rest a bit longer. No sick leave or weekend breaks for poor baby carers!

Tuesday, 14th October I was feeling ill and yet had to wake up every hour or so to feed / soothe baby in the night, I felt like I was going to die. And then I thought I heard him cry 'Mummy'.
