Of my own free will.
Here's the deal: Axel's best stretch of sleep is from 8pm until 2am. And then I feed him and he sleeps again until 5:30 or 6. And then he wakes up for the day at 8am. I try to go to bed at 10pm but I just wasn't tired enough. I was worn out, sure, but getting almost 10 hours of sleep (even though it wasn't really quality) made it hard to fall asleep easily.
So the new plan: Wake up to feed Axel at 5:30 or 6 and stay up. I can remember to take my iron supplement, eat my breakfast in peace, read my blogs in silence, shower before noon. . . so many great advantages. But the best part (I'm hoping) is that I'll more easily fall asleep. Maybe even at 9pm! That would give me a 5 hour stretch of sleep! And then another 3-4 hours after that.
The less broken my sleep is, the better.
I feel like we've been down this road before. . .
