lets face it, we all need a "moment." i need one. right now to be exact. i need a moment of silence while Hampton is having his moment #37 of crying. So i've decided to blog about about his latest activities that are driving us crazy during this "season."
hmm where to start...
He has been waking up 3 to 4 times in the middle of the night all week and has started he's days at 5. (not typical of my 10-12 hour night sleeper). He is crying all day unless I'm walking around holding him. All 4 of my baby carriers have gotten a lot of practice this week & my back is ready to sit out. His naps are about 45 min to an hour long leaving me to nurse him every 2 hours (this is not an exaggeration). I pumped mid early morning yesterday (8 AM) and got about an ounce. He has been like this all week, I'm hoping its just a growth spurt but i have a tiny little mommy itch that its not a growth spurt...its a hunger issue. And a hunger issue for this families budget can't happen. Hampton needs to breastfeed, hampton HAS to breastfeed.
poor little guy has been my constant high maintenance baby and it has really put a strain on all of us, especially me. oh i hate to admit that. no mom wants to admit that she doesnt have it all under control, and honestly i'm cringing over the fact that i dont. I'm not sure if i can even continue to blog about it without sounding like a horrible mom. so i guess i wont. We have our well check on monday so I assume when we gets weighed we will know for sure if its a hunger issue or something else. i know all babies go through spurts of being of unhappy...but were going on 5 months of unhappiness, not quiet sure if thats normal or not.
well guess i should go get my little screamer. ive pouted enough i suppose.
