Day and Night Reversal
Bryan can sleep through all the crying and so luckily he hasn't lost any sleep yet, because he has to go to work each day. I, however, have only gotten a few minutes here and a few minutes there during the night. It's not a huge deal right now though because my mom is visiting for the week and she kindly listens out for him for the good part of the mornings while I catch up on some much needed sleep.
I read somewhere that to fix this reversal problem, you need to make sure the surroundings are clear for the day and the night. I have almost every light on in the house along with all the window coverings open to make it apparent that it is day time. I have been trying to talk to Seth during all our feedings and he has even been spending some time of his napping time in his bouncer chair. Tonight my plan is to make sure to be keep the lights low while feeding and I am going to be very quiet in hopes that he will soon be able to realize that day is day and night is night. We'll see how long this learning process takes...
