This week feels like survival week. David Michael will not sleep at night... I am beyond exhausted. I am not really sure what to do? He continually coughs, spits up, and clears his throat which wakes him up. I nurse him every two hours because he acts like he wants food. After I nurse him I hold him up for thirty minutes to make sure he has time to digest his food. I can tell he is tired and wants to sleep, but he is woken up with either coughing, spit up or this weird thing that sounds like he clears his throat. I have tried him sleeping in his bassinet, bouncy seat, car seat, swaddled, and unswaddled. I am at a loss at what to do? I willingly accept any advice...
On the other hand, he is an excellent eater. He will not let me push him more than every two hours. Which means he is growing! He is even wearing some size three month clothes. Most newborn clothes no longer fit. (sad day)
As for the momma, other than being completely exhausted am doing well. Down a couple more pounds this week, which leaves me with seventeen more to go. (because I really want to wear my wedding ring again) I began walking again this week. I am working my way up. Only made it three times, but felt pretty good. I just do not want to over do it too early and set myself up.
I can not believe Christmas is next week! And my little one will be one month old! How time flies!
