I have gas-guilt!
I co-sleep, or whatever it’s called with my baby James. Just me and him in a big, king-size bed…that he somehow manages to take up 2/3rds of! I’m having to admit here….that I’m LAZY. Yes, it’s true where sleep is concerned. I’ve never slept well to begin with. Not in my adult life. And, now that I’m a mom I sleep less. But…I try. Trying involves having to do as little as possible when I’m in bed at night; besides waking up every 15 minutes to check that the baby hasn’t cocooned himself in the blankets, or rutted himself off the deep end!
Anyway…he’s breastfed. Have I mentioned he weighs 25 pounds at 4 1/2 months old!?!? O_o So, I feed him during the night when he wants it, but I’m a bad mama, bcuz I admit that I don’t always have the strength to get up, get him up…and burp him. I know! I know! And, I’m a pretty strong chick. Just in the middle of the night, not so much. It’s not all the time. I try to do it most of the time. I do! But on the nights I don’t….he kinda groans, and strains, and farts a lot! Meaning, he’s not getting a good nights sleep either. So…………gas-guilt! Poor little guy :/
Just another one of those mom dilemmas. He will not burp when he’s asleep, no matter how much I work it. I have to get him awake to burp him. I don’t always want to wake him in the middle of the night. Fact, he can totally breastfeed when he’s asleep! lol. He just can’t burp.
