  • You'll have an easier time getting Sarah Palin to vote for the Communist party. **grin** He's normal. Keep things quiet at night, normal daytime activity in the day, and eventually baby will work into a better pattern. But you will get used to sleeping in three hour stretches.

  • I agree... you need to get on your 2 weeks schedule.. you'll do better if you don't fight it, and just let yourself nap when he naps.. and any schedule will change every 2 months or so.. they go through a growth spurt every few weeks, and that will jiggle things around a bit. "Flexibility is the key to success" as I've been told many times in the past! :D
