My precious Lil MT went in his swing w/o any protest at all today for the first time. He also slept 13 hours last night then took quite a few naps during the day today.
I am claiming I think I am noticing the tail end of a growth spurt. We were going 2.5 -4 hours without having to feed. Then For a week we would barely make 2 hours. The poor child was ravenous. Yesterday, again ..MUST EAT EVERY 2 HOURS!!!! I fed him, gave him a bath .. tried to feed him again at the 2 hour mark, He wanted nothing to do with feeding, He wanted to sleep. So I just let him sleep. He slept from 7:15 pm - 7:50am. I woke him up, I was getting nervous. I took his temperature because I just assumed he was sick ... (way to think positive huh). His temp was normal. I changed his diaper, offered him a feeding. Then he slept again. This is the child that only takes cat naps. He slept 45 mins. I changed his diaper and tried to put him in the bouncey seat. He stayed there but eventually got hungry, So I fed him again. About 30 mins after that feed he was still awake so I put him in the swing to finish packing. (We fly out tomorrow at 8am.) I left him in the swing, I walked by about 3 minutes later and he was already back sleeping. He slept for 1.75 hours ... I was beginning to worry .. Then it clicked, He is 12 weeks, This must be his growth spurt. He has not ate very well today (thank god for my pump). I am wondering how our plane ride will be since I am really unsure of his eating schedule right now. I do not really know how long a growth spurt lasts. I am impressed that I remembered that there is a growth spurt at 3 months. My breast feeding group said that 6weeks and 3 months, 6 months, 1 yr are the milestones. We have 2 under our belts now. And now I am starting to recognize the signs.
We are jetting off to the Home of the Packer's tomorrow to let MT meet my FIL and his family for a week. I have actually never met the FIL myself. ( i have met some of his family). If you will, think good thoughts for us. I am really nervous about the flying with an infant, the meeting the In Laws, staying with the InLaws because they insisted, family drama (there is a lil bad history , of course, but hopefully the past is past).....
Finally, Blogger let me add the follower option. So Cool. Follow along if you wish. See ya when I get back
