Sleepless

The Little Lady used to sleep so well.  But maybe that was because of her jaundice.

She did not sleep so well last night.  Ergo, I did not sleep so well last night. (It's fun to use "ergo" in a sentence.  When I am sleep deprived, simple things make me happy.)

It's not easy to burp her at night.  Partly because she's sleepy, mainly because I'm sleepy.  So I keep her upright and try to burp her.  She does not burp, but I keep dozing off, which makes me scared that I'll drop her.  So I figure I've kept her upright long enough (usually between 20 minutes to 40 minutes) and I put her in the cot.  So she spits up milk.  Which makes her hungry.  So I nurse her.  Then I try keep her upright and try to burp her.  Then I doze off, which makes me scared that I'll drop her.  So I figure I've kept her upright long enought and I put her in the cot. So she spits up milk.  Which makes her hungry. 

Lather.  Rinse. Repeat.

Life with a new(ish) born is tiring.
