Kids eating

Two major updates about the kiddos and their eating:

  1. I haven’t breastfed Ellen since Saturday morning (over 2 days ago). We went out Saturday evening and I didn’t feel like pumping when we got back… so I just figured I might as well stop completely. So far, only some minor discomfort starting this afternoon. And Ellen hasn’t really complained, other than trying to pull on my shirt once.
  2. Lewis has been eating a lot more, both in quantity and in frequency. After beginning the melatonin before bed, he has been better behaved and a much more willing eater. Bedtime now takes about 30-45 mins instead of 2-3 hours. It looks like the lack of sleep was impacting everything in his life! Go figure. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I hope the melatonin makes a difference for you! My only advice is to give it to him once you’re settled in bed, not while you’re still getting ready. We didn’t have the timing figured out and lewis became unreasonable and melted down into a screaming disaster because he was so tired. But if we give it to him at storytime in bed, he is great!
