The pacifier made a huge difference. We had some fussing, but not the usual hours of cries. His sleep pattern was really weird yesterday–he was awake all morning, slept all afternoon and into the evening, was up until 10:30 and then reverted to his old night schedule of midnight, 3 and 6 am nursing. I was afraid that we’d be up all night.
Tonight we are going to infant story time at the library. They have it the third Tuesday of every month. I hope to go regularly because it’s important to me that he has an interest in books. I’m also going to look into a program called FRED, Fathers Reading Every Day, for him and DH. It’s a new program that started in February, so they missed it that session, but I’m hoping that they do it again. They take men with children from newborn on up. I’m not sure what the maximum age is.
