YY begins to sleep lesser

Mami & Popo, stop rocking me to Zzzzz. I want you all to entertain me!

That's her face telling me she doesn't want to sleep so often now during day time! In fact, that's what I read from Baby Centre about my 6weeks old baby, that by now she will sleep lesser. True enough lah. Which means, gotto entertain her and QQ more, pening....pening.....

That's not all. She even gets crankier than before. Worst case scenario is always at night, around 9pm onwards. That is the time where I bring her to bed. From her full moon day until now, there are time where she ROARS fiercefully whenever I try to put her to bed. She seems to want nen-nen endlessly +_+ There were once where she sucked too much till she vomited. Haiih...susah betul. If don't give her nen-nen, she'll scream her lung out. And if I continue to offer her my boobies, in the end overfed pulak. Sometimes, we both struggle together for about an hour (lucky me!), and if bad time, the drama will only end 2-3hours later @_@ 

YY has never been on the sarong since she was born. Popo and I prefer to rock/pat her to sleep. She will doze off pretty fast and we can just leave her on sofa/bed thereafter. But lately she sing mook (becomes smarter) already. The moment she is away from our arms, she'll be wide awake. And then starts to make noise, want to snuggle with me or Popo. So now the trick is, we will rock her to sleep on our arms for about 30mins++, then only put her on sofa/bed. That way, she seems to be able to sleep longer. Still, it doesn't work well every time though :P Depend on our luck lah. 

Each time QQ screams or when YY cries loudly (crocodile tears only!!), I mau surrender liao. But then I will think back what my mom has told me before. That I should be grateful to be able to witness baby's crying. I should be grateful to be able to carry a baby so often (even though old folks always say don't carry baby too much else baby will stick to you day and nite). I should be grateful to be annoyed by all the crying and screaming of my own kids. Why?? Simply because there are many other women out there who are not able to have their own child. They are longing for a chance to handle the most cranky baby too. This is very true. So I shouldn't complain so much. I SHOULD be grateful with what I have now. When baby cry, shut my ears and open my mouth to sing to her lah :) All she needs is comfort only... =)

It's very true, we are all grateful for our healthy, bubbly kids, though they scream and get cranky and test our patience... Because we are a part of the blessed women who call ourselves mothers ;-)
