Times 一粒 woke up/ (slept back) last night:
2255 (2308) – feed
0236 (0245) – feed
0530 (0630) – 💩 and had a hard time falling back to sleep so I side latched
Woke up officially at 8am! ☀️🔆☀️🔆
Put 宝贝 down for first nap at 0911 but it still took him a good 25mins to fall asleep. Maybe he wasn't tired because I didn't catch any tired cues, but he was yawning earlier; just 30 mins after waking up. 🤔 #confused
Could also be due to the construction noises though.
10:05 – And… He woke up at the 30mins mark. Like clockwork. I think he is just unable to connect the sleep cycles. I see his eyes fluttering awake, closing back, fluttering awake again, closing back… And suddenly he just gets startled and starts doing his leg lifts. 😶
Put 宝贝 down for his next nap at 1120am but it's now 12 and he is still whining and crying. 😔 Same WT as yesterday but why can't he fall asleep?
Latched him and put him down at 1205.
He is awake screaming just 5 mins later. 😩
Relatched and managed to get him back on the bed but he is still making small noises and cries once I removed my hand from his tummy. 😶
12:40 – aaah ok. This nap is not happening.
13:30 – Side latching 宝贝 now because I am desperate for him to nap. No idea what caused this "regression" since I didn't do anything differently from yesterday. He is farting a lot though. Maybe tummy troubles?
I must say I do enjoy side latching though.. minimal effort on my part and it is just so adorable to see him munching away with his eyes closed and *squeals* look at those chubby cheeks and small swaddled up hands placed cutely on my boob. 😍
宝贝 fell asleep at 140pm and woke up at 215pm
Latched him and he slept again from 250pm to 4pm. Think 宝贝 is really not feeling well. He puked 3 big mouthfuls of milk and his tummy looks really bloated. He was all smiley after puking though

宝贝 took a cat nap from 530pm to 6pm. Tried to transition him to BT after that but like yesterday, he was just too alert and awake. Brought him out to play tried to put him to bed again 45mins later but someone just kept playing at the boob and looking around. 🙄
Since 宝贝 wasn't hungry, I decided to just put him into his cot but he started wailing immediately. Picked him up again, and just held him. He was strangely ok with it (he usually doesn't like to be held unless while nursing/ when already asleep), and was all contented babbling to himself and sucking his swaddled fist.
Was contemplating just holding him until he fall asleep but after 5 mins he got all squirmy so I just plonked him on our bed.
When he didn't cry, I hurriedly sneaked to the foot of the bed and observed him. He just whined and whined and…fell asleep (at 725pm). Yay!!
No idea if I am introducing another bad habit but err this lil boy seems to like sleeping on our bed. For all the naps that he successfully self soothed, it was done on our bed. Maybe it's way more comfortable than the co-sleeper? 🤔
22:00 – 宝贝 is awake! Super kancheong this baby! Was thumping his left fist on my chest while his mouth searched for the nips. 😂
