Winnie may not be the direct focus of this post, but even she has been affected by the many sleepless nights that have been occurring at our home lately.
My son, Ryan, is 5 months old and, up until he was about 3 and half months old, he was the perfect little sleeper. As long as he was swaddled and bundled up tight he would sleep long stretches through the night. Now…things have changed.
Ryan has realized his own strength and the Miracle Blanket is no longer working miracles and he is able to break out of even my husband’s tightest swaddle. As a result, we have transitioned into a Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit. Unfortunately, Ryan does not find Merlin so Magical.
We are to the point where we do not know if we should run down the list and purchase any pajama or blanket that could give us some sleep or tough it out till he learns to sleep soundly on his own.
On the bright side, my husband and both know we will miss these little midnight parties with our son. We know there will be a day when he does not want to spend time us and we will be trying to drag him out of bed to start his day.
Also, I have a new discovered love and appreciation of coffee.
