However, in the afternoon, he goes into this feeding frenzy and doesn't feed efficiently. He feeds for short periods of time and often falls into a deep sleep that I can't wake him up to continue feeding. I then put him in his bassinet (bedroom) or porta cot (lounge) only to hear him scream after a few minutes. This time it sounds like "waahhh". He has an angry cry and is often startled easily even though the room could be absolutely quiet or noisy..no difference. I would have to pick him up to settle him and sometimes end up holding him in my arms while he sleeps. I would then try to put him down again and sometimes the second attempt works, sometimes it doesn't and I end up holding him again. An hour later, he does the same thing. It only happens in the afternoon which I find it quite odd. The weather has been really warm and I read that babies get dehydrated and need to drink often for short periods to quench their thirst. I reckon this is what has been happening. He probably feels uncomfortable too. We have the evaporative cooling switched on but it can still feel a bit humid and warm sometimes so I switch on the fan as well. When night comes and the weather cools down, Isaac returns to his normal happy self and so does mummy!
This Friday, Isaac will turn 1 month old, yay! I'm happy because he has put on lots of weight, is feeding well and is healthy and strong. However, I am also happy because my confinement period will come to an end. This means, no more ginger! I told Ken the first thing I'm going to have is Macas' soft serve ice cream..yes the cheapest thing is what I've missed most. Yuummmy!
