Having a newborn baby coupled with being a single parent isn’t easy. I’ve found myself asking the baby why he won’t sleep, if he has gas, and so on. My oldest has been my savior since the day I brought him home, but he tires of guessing what the baby wants as well.
I bought the baby swing a few months before he was born, bought batteries a week after he was born, but the day I decided to put him in there, it just looked like it was swinging too fast for a newborn. Then I decided I’d try the bouncer. He’d sit in it for a few minutes only to begin crying again.
I was almost at my wits end today when I decided to try the swing again. I put him in there and he just looked around, but stayed quiet. Next thing I know, he was sleeping (like a baby lol). It was at that time that I decided that maybe, just maybe I was being a little over protective. I left him in there and was able to get some chores done.
An hour later and he is still in there and I still have my sanity. Wish I would have realized this a week ago or even this morning, when I was trying to sleep and he decided that it was not time to sleep 🙂
