Well, we're finally starting to feel better. Nati is still getting up every 2 hours at night, and I still have a sinus infection, but I feel somewhat, sort of human for the first time in 2-1/2 weeks.
At the urging of my mother and husband, I decided to give Natalie some rice cereal in the evenings to try to get her to sleep better. I had set in my mind that I was going to wait until she was 6 months, but after weeks of no sleep, I was willing to try anything.
Tonight is the third night I've given it to her, and I have to say, she LOVES it. (and this cereal was given to her AFTER I had already nursed her with a really good feeding! She acts like she hadn't been fed in hours, but she had just eaten, really well!) I'm going to stick with the cereal only at night for quite some time, and not introduce anything else for a few more months. I just don't think her system is ready for it.
But, I have to admit, she looks SO cute with the cereal all over her face!
