First, .... I really need to get some new pictures up of Davis and second I need to loosen up a bit and start trying to get Davis to sleep without me. I go back to work in may and while I have a month in a half to get him sleeping in his bassinet i feel like it might take that long. He just loves snuggling with his mama :) It works right now because I'm not working but when I have to be at work at 8 am I have a feeling it wont be as wonderful. I'm so torn with going back to work and this just adds to my anxiety about it. As i type he is asleep,...tummy down in his moses basket next to me on the couch. He sleeps great like this but he still can't do it without me watching him, making sure he is breathing. I have had many moms tell me just to put him on his stomach at night but I just cant. The risk is just to much. I'm thinking I'm going to get one of those angel care monitors. Have you heard of them? It's a monitor that you put under there mattress that picks up even the slightest movement, ie-newborn breathing. If the infant does not move after 15 seconds the alarm beeps once giving you a warning if they don't breath for another 5 seconds the alarm sounds. Ive talked to a few moms that have them and they say they don't know how they ever slept without one. It's great piece of mind and I have two moms I know that use it because their babies like to sleep tummy down. I plan on ordering one here soon,... I think it will help me with getting him sleeping without me. I pray every night that God will keep my sweet baby safe, we always say our prayers before snuggling down for the night. I'm worried now that something will happen to him and he's sleeping on me! Can you imagine how spastic I'll be when I got to put him in his bed?! ugh! I'm pretty sure if I wasn't going back to work that we might be sleeping together for awhile. If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears!! Gotta go... little love is stirring and I'm sure he would like to eat :)
