Just wondering, how long did it take you to get him on a normal schedule as far as eating, sleeping, etc?



LOL yes he is relieved and so am I!! After i had him I couldn't see myself ever feeling normal again.
It took me 2 days. I don't talk about this much because
I know it comes off mean. What I did was keep him up all day, no long 3-4 hour naps. It was VERY rough for both of us the 1st 2 days. I allowed him 2 naps during the day, no longer than 40 minutes to an hour. if he slept beyond 40-60 min during the day I would wake him. He did not like that. So he was crabby and irritable all day.

By 9pm he was so tired he went down without a fight. I would give him his bath at 8, read to him, feed him and he would put himself down, lol. I didn't see this advice anywhere online, but it's how I have always reset my clock. Thankfully it worked on him. I started this at the beginning of April, so he was just barely 4 months. He's been sleeping through the night ever since-----well up until recently when these teeth started to cut through. Now I dote on him and let him nap 2-3 hours during the day twice since he is miserable. Sol now for the last 2 weeks he has been sleeping from anywhere from midnight to 10am, or from 5am to 2pm. I am not complaining because I am getting a lot more rest!

Once these teeth emerge we will go back to the 8-10pm bed time. I liked being a morning person!Tongue

@afrokock, thank you!Star

@ danieb thank you so much! I have been wanting a child for a long time and being an older mom makes me appreciate it all the more.

@cocoa, thank you, lol. that picLOL

@khivey thank you kindly!

@sweetnovember, didn't it FLY by?! I actually miss him being a newborn. Yeah he is proud--he told me it was a boy the entire pregnancy and was all matter of fact when we found out it was indeed a boy. His words "I know what I did."LOL  I am looking forward to seeing him change and grow. One thing that saddens me is online, (especially reading the comments on youtube vlogs) I am seeing an automatic assumption that Black women who marry and have babies with white men went out of their way to marry out and have mixed kids. @sexibeach, thank youI have at one point or another been interested in men from every group, except middle eastern. The assumption that those of us who marry out have an ulterior motive is hurtful. I have to admit I am sincerely surprised that he came out looking the way he does. We were both expecting my husband to experience this but the shoe is on my foot. I go back and forth between being amused by people's reactions and annoyed. He is a spitting image of my husband as a child, but with my nose--though mine was a bit wider as a baby.

@concreterose; THANK you! He is for the most part a happy child! He has not had even so much as a runny nose since birth, so it'll be interesting to see how his disposition changes during illness. This teething process has been a trial for him, but I don't wanna give him oragel. Holding him seems to help a lot and keeping him stimulated with activities, teething rings and toys. Overall he is a very silly and laid back little boy though.Tongue

@sexibeach, thank you!! Yes seeing him everyday I don't really notice it, but looking back on old pics he was so tiny compared to now!!!Ouch It just goes way too fast.

@OP--as hard is it is out here for a sista these days I'd be damned if I'd give a second thought to someone else's opinion about my man. Let them O's struggle.
