Henry slept from 9pm - 2am like I mentioned before. I fed him a bottle because he was ravenous and he gulped down 4 oz in no time at all. Afterwards, I opted to pump since he was wide awake anyway, and he hung out on his belly while I did my thing. I put him in bed at about 3:00 but he just wouldn’t relax. He was fussy, and started making hungry faces so I tried to give him the rest of the bottle but he literally smacked it out of his mouth with his hand. It was pretty hilarious actually, someone has attitude! He got more and more agitated but then I realized he wanted the boob. As soon as I took it out he was rooting and rolling towards me, so I breastfed him lying down for a while. I’m not sure for how long since I slept through most of it but the only problem was, the angle was awkward and the latch was bad so it started to hurt pretty quick. I eventually pulled him off when it got too unbearable but by that time he was fast asleep so was spared further injury.
It’s nice to know that he prefers the boob to the bottle, even if it’s pumped milk but I need to figure out a better system for side lying or get used to breastfeeding sitting up and half asleep.
Then, he slept again from 5 until 10! I may have rolled over and fed him around 730 briefly, I don’t actually remember! (The joys of co-sleeping) Ryan gave him a bottle of pumped milk at 10 so I could sleep some more and he passed right out again after.
My brain is a little scrambled this morning so all that might not make sense, but the whole point of this post is that I’m wondering if he’s having a growth spurt. He never sleeps this long without eating. Maybe next I’m we take him in to get weighed he’ll be 10lbs!
