I’ve got the feeling Sadie is going to give us a real run for our money.
In other news: I thought I was giving Sadie a late nap when she FINALLY fell asleep at 5:20 yesterday (after trying to get her down since 3:45), but she ended up sleeping until 6:30 this morning. Well, she woke up to nurse every one and a half to two hours to nurse (though she doesn’t really wake up all the way for that, most of the time). That’s THIRTEEN hours, folks! How the heck does that happen? What’s the explaination here???
In other, other news: we are considering (as in, probably going to do it today) getting Sadie an exersaucer. I never thought I’d spend money on such a gargantuan piece of noisy plastic, but heck if she doesn’t just love the one at her Mimi and Papa’s house. And she’s getting a little big for the Bumbo, not to mention her annoyance at her always dropping her toys out of reach. Yes, this is me rationalizing a purchase I’m bound to regret in one way or another. Our house is a little small to be welcoming in such gear. Should I be buying what is, essentially a babysitter–something I can stick her in while I do things like cook or clean (that I probably could do with her in the sling)?
Have any of you bought something like this for your babes? What’s the verdict? How long did your baby use it? Am I totally over analyzing this decision (yes)?
