Ellie usually wakes up between 5:30 and 6:00 am these days. She also tends to take short naps so she still needs four naps to be OK the whole day. However, she is fast becoming unwilling to take that last nap and so usually wants to be awake from around 1:30-2:00 (until bedtime around 7:00). However, around 3:30-4:00 (when she should be taking a little quick nap to get her through) she gets very fussy and whiny and wants me to hold her all the time, which is really not an option. Enter the Ergo.
First of all, she likes being in it, which eliminates the fussiness.
And second of all, it puts her to sleep.
Some days, she’ll be happy in the high chair for a little while so I can get some of dinner done. The other day, this happened!
I’m grateful for the Ergo although she’s already feeling really heavy on my back and we’re only 7 months into this thing. I think I need to start doing Pilates to strengthen my core!
