Our Nathanael is such a great sleeper -at night. I am thankful for that. Right after we brought him home from the hospital, he slept so well. I had to wake him up after 4 hours to feed him – and he fell right back asleep. I feel so blessed, because those of you who have followed my blog for a while, know that we have had sleep issues with our Princess.
In the day time? Nathanael is not that great of a sleeper. In fact, he has a hard time sleeping in the daytime. He gets fussy, because he is so tired. He really wants to be held all day. When I wear him, he does fall asleep for a while, but usually just wants milk all day long. So we have learned that if we swaddle him tightly, and give him a pacifier, he does a lot better in the daytime.
