Amanda, Jai, and Esha came to visit on Monday and play a little. We went to dinner at Maie's and Susu's on Tuesday. That was a bit overwhelming with 10 adults and 10 kids there!
Monday I went to Safeway with Miles while Ella was at school.
Thursday Miles and I went to the doctors for me, gas station, and Target. He was awake and content in Target. I was shocked.
I've tried numerous carriers this week and he complains and cries in them most of the time. The only one that has worked some of the time is the Ergo.
He had a few good nights and a few bad nights with sleep. Two of the days this week he was eating non stop and that was not fun for me. Most days his naps are super short at home but then when Dave is here, he seems to nap longer so it seems easier!
We started using the Halo Sleep Sack that isn't a swaddle + special snuggle wings to get his arms secure and then a blanket sort of swaddled around all that. The newborn Halo Swaddle sleep sack was too small and the one that was one size up was just a little big or weird and he'd always break out of it usually from the bottom and then he was waking up too early.
Miles is content a lot when I just lie him down on the bed, floor, or couch. He likes to look around. He's held a few toys but doesn't really care. He hates going into his carseat but if he's tired he at least stops crying and chills in there away. He doesn't really fall asleep but at least he's quiet. He's getting better at sleeping longer at night but that first stretch where he sleeps over 5 hours I'll still be up for 3 hours with Ella. I am not a fan! Days he's not swaddled well in the morning he'll last 5 minutes in his crib for his last segment of sleep but he'll sleep more than an hour if I'm holding him so it's like he's swaddled. He's had a couple good swaddles and he lasted over an hour at that stretch in the crib. It's so hard to get a good swaddle sometimes though.
