i have 5 kiddos. 15,8,7,3, and an 8 month old. the 8 month old has pulmonary stenosis. He has absolutely NO signs anything is wrong with him. he had 2 cath's in his first 2 weeks and a stent put in his PDA. He has no issues with eating AT ALL..you could set your watch by him! he eats 6-8 oz every 3 hours..plus solids like a trooper. BUT HE DOESN'T SLEEP!! he'll take 2 1 hour naps a day..not too shabby alnthough all my other kids slept a lot longer.. he goes down at night at 630pm..that's just when he's tired.. we've tried moving his nap to later..trying to get him to stay up later..not working for him. 630 comes and he's done. he's generally back up at 10ish and again at 2/3am then up for the day at 6...im exhausted!!
im not complaining that he is doing well and eating alot etc..i know it could be much worse..but he's almost 9 months old..sleep through the night already!! he is the lightest sleeper alive..you'd think with 4 loud siblings and an even louder father he'd sleep like a rock! He had to go to my MIL house because i had to have surgery to remove cancer and my thyroid and my DH stayed with me and the kid didn't sleep for more then 20 min the whole time...i felt terrible!! does it get better? is it him? is it his condition?
he's lucky he's cute!
