Well, you would think I would have learned by now not to make such cavalier comments about good sleep! We never did the three tablespoons since we need to buy the right kind of nipples for the thicker consistency. That night we went ahead with the two and he woke up at 1:15 and again at 5. I suspected he wasn’t really hungry but repeated pacifier replacements didn’t really placate him so I ended up feeding him anyway and he fell back out. Last night, we did the two tablespoons again but he woke up around 1:30 congested as all get out (the snorkiness, it has returned) and it messed with his sleep pretty much all night long. He and I took a decent nap this morning and now he’s down for his long afternoon nap but he’s waking up snorky a LOT. I think when Andy gets home we will bundle him up in his car seat and take him for a ride–I’m meeting friends out and I think he’ll sleep better in his car seat since he’ll be on an incline. I tried to get him to nap in it but he really doesn’t sleep in it all that much anymore unless it’s moving and I don’t have the strength (or the patience, really) to just walk around the apartment carrying the car seat.

Nonetheless, for poor sleep and snorkiness, when he’s awake he’s still been in a dandy mood. Thank God for small miracles.

    It’s amazing to me, but apparently it takes time to learn that you can breathe through your mouth when your nose isn’t working. Our worst nights were when one of the kids was congested and kept waking up in a panic for air. One day it hits them that mouth-breathing is okay.
