Nap Strike

Lately, Jeffrey has basically refused to take naps. I have a feeling we've arrived at the dreaded 4 month wakeful period. He just gets too darn distracted by himself: playing with his feet, making sounds and faces with his mouth, etc. Yesterday, he woke up at 10:30am and didn't take a nap until 5:30pm. That nap only lasted thirty minutes. Yup. My almost 4 month old baby napped for only THIRTY minutes an entire day. He was exhausted. As for that saying "sleep begets sleep"? So true. He didn't sleep very well at all last night, waking up about every two hours. That's tough considering he slept for almost 8 consecutively the night before plus an additional four after a good meal.

Thankfully (and finally), I remembered to use the wrap. I'm constantly using my loveyduds wrap when I'm out and about, but I tend to not use it while I'm at home. Well, he's napping in it. Thank goodness. He's actually been asleep currently for a little over an hour. YAY! We should have a happier baby and happier parents (should he decide to sleep better tonight). At least it's the weekend.

I forget to use my wrap at home too. Hubby usually suggests it and I'm all, "Oh yeah why didn't I think of that."

I hope he starts napping again soon.
