I know I have said something good about our newborn’s sleeping habit during the first few days when we got home from the hospital. He was a very good sleeper – that dream baby I used to see in the commercials and those in baby product labels. Actually, baby Ben is still a good sleeper now.
When the clock strikes 10 pm, he would be in a crying frenzy. Fed full, with clean diapers and clothes, there is no valid reason for him to cry except that famous “because I just want to” kind of baby cry. That cry that makes you want to scratch your head. People in the house had been sleepless for days now because of baby Ben’s crying schedule. I have thought of the crying as colic but even with colic medicine, he has not let go of his crying schedule.
My mother said that at one point in the baby’s life, they make day as night and night as day. And I just have to live with that. Heh.
I love babies, I really do (I adore even babies not my own) but an hour of uninterrupted sleep – I love that too and hope it will come to my life SOON.
