Another Day

Allan is checking the Logan Report from work all the time now. It's good that he sees what I'm going through and I think he feels more connected to Logan too. I didn't think he'd be that into it but last night when Logan woke up for a bottle Allan went downstairs to the computer and updated the site -at 2:30 am. Al has even made both Google and the Logan Report open up every time we open up our browser at home. Oh, Logan's Blog even made it onto the Trixe Tracker 'buzz' page LOL

The book of today is the No Cry Sleep Solution. It is highly recommended by Ben Stiller so it has to be great, right?

Pretty much there everything they are saying in this one we are already doing or have read in the Baby Whisper (!!). I think I might come back to this one after Logan reaches 5 months and/or 15 pounds as that is when they can sleep through the night.

What the book says:

  • swaddle (we're using this, which is okay -he can 'escape' from it if he wants to)

  • dark room, low light when night feeding (we've got pull down blinds and a dimmer switch)

  • white noise (got it!)

  • simple routine (we're working on it)

  • little stimulation at night feeding (very little talking, slow movements)

  • at 3 months put down in crib when drowsy (we've been following the BW advice and doing this from the start)

So there. Now you don't have to read the book if you have a newborn.

On a sidenote, I thought this was a bit freaky: Newborn to four months -naps, night time sleeps and total sleep time = unpredictable and varies widely. Great. :P

Here is a picture of Logan demonstrating the 'Eairh' sound -which he followed up with a fart and poo. LOL The Dunstan Baby Language thingy seems to be accurate!

After this I changed his diaper and he was ready for bed.

In other news -our house is delayed until the end of August. They called today and said it is because of the weather...I guess the coldness and snow slowed them down. Or maybe it's just an excuse? I also found out that our street number is '9'. Nine turns out to be a very interesting number too -We're going to go with the Chinese on this one as they say it's lucky.

Sister, you MUST try the amazing miracle swaddling blanket. I feel very strongly about crappy swaddling blankets and was able to get both my boys wrapped until about 5 months. Also, please drop me an email if you'd like a copy of our book [heather@...] -- I'd love to get your honest feedback.
