All Right Boys, Let's Get in Line!

The boys are coming out of that initial sleepy baby stage, and suddenly spreading their feedings all over the place. Last night was rough, rough, rough! Sam slept well, but his "brodders" spent most of the night on Mom & Dad's chests snoozing and fussing while we barely slept. We can't be having that!

Today we're moving to a tight ship schedule that involves waking everyone up and starting feedings 10 minutes apart. And yes, we will prop bottles.

There's the 11 a.m. wake up call. Gotta go...

my feeling on the propped bottles is, you do what you have to do, and if it works for your family, then who cares what anyone else thinks? :)

my mom's general philosophy after 5 kids, and years of home day care is "just keep them alive during the first 2 years" and that rule seems to work really well!

I'm all for the strict schedule. I only had one at a time but Dennis was gone all of the time, so for my own sanity we were on a very strict schedule!
Hope it gets easier every day.
