Too Whiny?

I finished Violet's late night feeding and slipped her into her bassinet. She stared at me, wide-eyed and kicking, so I started rocking her. Ten minutes later, her eyes closed, her arms fell to her side, and I slowed the rocking to a stop. I washed out her bottle, trying not to make too much noise. I rinsed out the diaper and climbed into bed at 5:29 AM. My alarm was set for 6:00.

73 days old


  1. Feel free to whine! It's tough to manage a classroom full of children all day on a cat nap. I know it is not universally accepted, but my advice is to give up the bottles and bring the baby into bed for breastfeeding. Produces more milk, calms the baby back to sleep, and can be safe.

  2. Anne - Linda loves breastfeeding in bed. She usually does the 6 AM feeding there. I take an overnight feeding so Linda can get a good 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep. As of today (2/5), Violet seems to be back on the bottle bandwagon.
