We made it. He was considerably less fussy this past evening. Hubby suggested that since my boobies don't hurt anymore that we just stuff the boobie in his mouth. This seemed to work. At 9pm we all went to bed. He woke up as usual at 11pm so I fed him. Then about 12 midnight we fed him again and again about 1pm. By two he was doing much better. I wonder if he goes on these feeding frenzies and we just didn't realize it.
Now he's happier this morning. Hubby and I slept til about 10am. We are much happier too. The baby is now asleep in his car seat. This is nice because he loves to cuddle; he's a heat seeking missile when he sleeps with us. The next step will be getting him to sleep in the car seat and bassinet. My parents ordered us this teddy bear that is supposed to comfort the baby with sounds like in the womb. They've heard people swear by them. I figure that it never hurts to try. Whatever makes my child happy, I'll do it. Well at this point anyway.
Oh, and we've reached a mile stone. His umbilical chord is practically off. It's holding on by literally a thread. Hubby thinks we should just nick it before it pulls on him. I'm so excited that today when I go out shopping I'm going to get him a tub.
I feel so much better. Thanks for all the hugs and prayers. I just needed a step in the positive direction. This has helped us out a lot.
