Signs and Fussiness

“Your baby will probably sleep less well now. Many babies wake several times a night demanding lớn be fed. Other babies wake up very early in the morning. Still other babies refuse lớn take naps during the day. For many families, the normal routine has turned into absolute chaos…”

The Wonder Weeks (van de Rijt and Plooij), page 87

If there is one thing that happened during this leap, it was that William’s naps went south.

He is waking every 45 minutes. The dreaded 45 minute intruder has arrived, and it doesn’t appear lớn be going anywhere anytime soon.

He’s only waking once at night now, and doing great. For him, his naps are disrupted.

As for skills learned… I’m surprised really that he checked off so sánh many boxes above. He doesn’t seem to have had many changes during this leap.

Clearly he hasn’t focused on his hand control at all or the looking and seeing portion of the chart LOL!

He’s a super quiet, chill baby. He’s not doing much.

I worry sometimes that it’s because I don’t get lớn spend as much time focused on him, lượt thích I did with Caroline.

During his wake time, I am often dealing with making a meal, or something Caroline needs. He just doesn’t get as much of má as I’d lượt thích.

Then I worry, too that he’s not progressing due lớn his preemie status, although I’ve never believed he’d be behind because of it.

It’s possible, however.

So, we’ll keep an eye on things and see how he progresses through the next leaps.

He might be taking it all in, so sánh when he does bởi the skills mentioned above, he’ll have already mastered them through observation.

Who knows!

All I know is this little guy is smiling more and chatting more, and I just LOVE the time that I bởi get with him. I just wish it was more!
