From about our third night home, we've been pretty lucky with Ayden's nighttime sleep schedule. Like I've mentioned before, he usually sleeps in 3 hour stretches and he definitely has his days and nights in the right order which is AWESOME! He also wakes up in the best mood after a good night (there are still a few rough ones every now and then...). This morning he gave David so many big smiles before he left for work. Such a great way to start the day!

Our only sleep problem is with nap times during the day. If I am wearing him in the Moby or Ergo, he'll sleep for hours. I love wearing him as it's nice to have him close and snuggly and I don't have to worry about running to check on him or carrying around the monitor. My only issue with wearing him is that my upper back gets very fatigued after 6 or so hours wearing him throughout the day (broken by a feeding or two) and he's only going to get heavier! This week I am starting to try to get him to nap a little on his own. Today after he had been awake for most of the morning, I decided to swaddle him before a feeding, then I fed him and bounced him to sleep on our stability ball (works even better than our glider). I laid him down and he slept for about 10 minutes and then his eyes were wide open like he'd never even been asleep.
