ACK! Days and Nights

Okay so maybe this was a fluke, maybe it was because he was out at Starbucks with me in the evening for a bit... but I'm terrified that Mason is starting to get his days and nights mixed up and I just don't think that I can handle that!

Here's what's going on. We are nursing... usually every 2 hours or so... 2 nights ago he went almost 3 hours each time between feedings and slept really well He went to bed around 10, was up at 12 and 130 (because he only nursed on one side each time) and then slept until 430!

Now last night he ate at 745 (both), 9 (both), 1020 (both), 1130 (both), slept until 320 (left), and 635 (both) and has been sleeping since (it's 915)

Is this normal or am I creating a monster who doesn't want to sleep at night (only wants to eat and look around!) I didn't nurse my DS1 very long and it was a horrible experience so I want to make sure I'm doing things right.

GTG - Mason's up to eat (thank goodness - bbs are ready!)

Re: ACK! Days and Nights

LOL.. thanks! I was kind of rambling up there wasn't I? We had another crazy feeding time this morning... he nursed on both sides, every hour, for like 3 hours... it was almost non-stop! But it's going so well otherwise that I just can't help but keep it up!

We have days/nights like that. Co-sleeping helps with that as I junk conk out while nursing her.. and she may nurse for an hour or so!

I know it's exhausting, but it won't last forever, mama!
