My grandparent's (Leonard and Joy Kay) got Stratton this Rocker & Seat by Fisher Price. He really seems to like it! It's the neatest thing, it can be a rocker or a stationary seat that vibrates and plays music and nature sounds. I have been putting him in it a lot it works out great for times when I don't really want to lay him down, like now when I am in the office on the computer. There is one slight problem. . . it almost always puts him to sleep!
Last night went much smoother than previous nights. I was actually able to feed him and put him right back down with little or no fussiness and crying. I hope he is getting the hang of things! We let him sleep in the crib in his room last night instead of the pack and play in our room and we used the video monitor. That monitor is fabulous!! It's such a convenient thing to be able to see him without having to get up out of bed and walk across the house to check on him! I think Jarrod and I both slept better with him in his own room, too. Even though we can still hear Stratton's noises on the monitor it wasn't as loud and noticeable. He is still waking up about every three hours ready to eat, but he is taking the bottle faster and burping so much better! We have started feeding him 3 ounces and he has been eating almost all of it every time. I hope he gets some meat on his bones soon!
I am also feeling much better today. I guess it's got a lot to do with getting more sleep and I haven't had any fever in several days. I have felt so bad for so long and I can't tell you how ready I am to feel like my normal self again! I am still really sore and sometimes it takes a little while to get up and down , but I am taking very few pain pills, so that is also a good sign!
We are taking Stratton back to the doctor in the morning . I think if it goes well he won't have to go back until 2 months. Yay!
