Jack hasn't been napping or sleeping much the past few days. He will "cat nap" and sleep for about 15 to 20 minutes at a time and then be wide awake again. I know he's tired because he will doze off all day long but just not sleep.
Today, I forced him to take a nap. Aren't I mean?
As he was getting drowsy around 11:00, I decided I would swaddle him. Usually, we only swaddle in the evenings, but what the heck right? He got wrapped up really tight, got his paci and then I dropped him in the swing on the lowest setting. It took him a couple of minutes, but he fell asleep!
It's now 90 minutes later. I had time to do the dishes, sweep the floor, clean the counter tops, eat lunch, dust, and balance my checkbook. Seriously, talk about a world of difference. My house thanks me.
I am such a mean mommy to force Jack to nap aren't I? Seriously though, I have heard that babies won't actually fall asleep unless they are tired, so clearly he must have been tired.
I can imagine that he's going to wake up crazy hungry. I better prepare myself!
