Out of town daddy = tired mommy.

Daddy's been out of town for just over 24 hours and we miss him! Let me tell you, single parenting? Not for the faint of heart and definitely not for me. I pray I never have to experience it on a permanent basis. That's for sure.

ND has developed some weird nighttime issues.  Sometimes she will sleep for a good five hours, then eat, then go right back to sleep (that was night before last).  Other nights she will be up every 2-3 hours demanding to eat (that was last night).  Blerg!  Anyone have any advice??  I mean, I don't feed her immediately when she wakes.  Last night I kept putting her back to sleep for over an hour.  After her waking me up that whole time and screaming at me for food I just fed her even though I *know* she can go longer than that. 

Not for the faint of heart I tell you. Not for the faint of heart.

Your really tired adoptive mama bloggy friend,

Isabel was the same way with feeding at night. We just started making less and less in the bottle each night and when it was gone that was it. Then when it got to 2 ounces I think we started diluting it with water and finally were able to just take it away.

I couldn't do single parenting either. I once thought I would before I met Dave and I'm so grateful for finding him before I tried to do that (adopt single) because I never would have made it. I admire single mom's so much.
