Quoting P Pickle Pants:" My son was up every single hour to nurse until he started solids. His reflux meant he couldn't eat much ... [snip!] ... tells me he lvoes me and hugs me tight til full daylight when he turns back into the raucous sweet little ball of crazy he is."
Oh wow, I can't imagine that. I'm SO thankful that DS is naturally a good sleeper, and hasn't had any issues like reflux or colic. He's practically a perfect baby, hitting milestones ahead of time and gaining weight like a champ. Took to breastfeeding really well as well, it's fantastic. It must have been so hard getting up every hour. I've only had to do that once when he had his two week growth spurt, but that was when I was trying to nap during the day. he's always been a napper during the day and sleeps well at night. I would absolutely LOVE to co-sleep, but unfortunately he's safer in his bassinet unless I kick SO out into the spare room lol. He's a flailer, and he's almost rolled over ME a few times when he's been really deeply asleep. Plus, they say not to co-sleep if one parent is under the influence of ANYTHING so I'm not going to risk it.. Although I do fall asleep feeding him in the mornings and I absolutely love waking up to him attacking my boob to get me to relatch him lol. It's so cute!
Awww that sounds so adorable, I sooo can't wait until DS can say "I love you" and other cute stuff! I have a feeling he's going to be a quiet, sensitive soul but a very on to it little guy. He's extremely aware, has been since day one. Not going to be able to get much past him lol. I can't wait to see what kind of person he grows to be though
