Babies confuse me [Jan. 26th, 2002|11:51 am]

I know that I'm working with no experience, but this kid is wierd. She eats like we never feed her, waking us up every two hours for a snack and a change, then during daylight she sleeps and goes for many hours without the need to feed like a starving bear. It has been exactly one week since we brought her home, and we are still learning her behaviors. Unfortunately, with growing up and stuff, whenever we learn what some sort of behavior means she will start fifteen others. The joys of parenthood. Give me my lobotomy now.

Ah the sweet darling girl has already found out exactly how to get the most attention, and when. Eventually they do learn to sleep through the night, it will happen, I promise.

She can't learn soon enough for me. Oh, well, I knew that they woke up every two hours before we started. I just wish someone meantioned that it takes 30 minutes to an hour to get them back to sleep. It's not like an alarm with a snooze. If she has a snooze button, I haven't found it. Must come off with the umbilical cord.
