Well it's been a frustrating day.  Robert's car broke down in traffic while he was grabbing lunch today.  And he had accidentally taken the car seat with him to work so I couldn't go help him.  Him taking the car seat also meant that Lia and I were housebound for the day (way too cold for a walk), which sounded nice in the morning but by about 1:00 we were both pretty bored.  And between the combo of being bored, her shots from yesterday, and my fumbling attempts to get her on a napping schedule (which resulted in a grand total of three 10-minute naps today), she's been a fussbucket all evening.  I'm bored to tears with a little bit of cabin fever and a short temper, and poor Robert had a tough day and came home to the two of us.

So we're just biding our time until it's the last feeding and bedtime for the little princess, and I can pour myself a glass of wine.

For anyone with a baby who reads this blog - what did your baby's daytime napping schedule look like around 10 weeks?  She sleeps very reliably at night, and through the night, but she fights sleep all day long and I struggle to get her to nap even though she's obviously tired.  All the books say it's too early for a schedule but winging it isn't working either.

  1. I'm going to preface this by saying that my first two children were horrible sleepers (day and night) and Anna is an exceptional sleeper.

    She started taking two naps a day around 8-9 weeks, before that her sleep was erratic. I do agree that before 12-ish weeks it's hard to create a schedule, but unfortunately some kids just don't nap well. Good won't matter by the time she's 5 years old :)
