Photo A Day in May...

The daily photos continue...under very trying circumstances.

The little fella went on a boobie strike that lasted 3 days and nights...yikes!
He just refused to feed unless he was super hungry and well rested. He also refused to feed during the night...but woke up at 11.30, 2.30, 3.30, 4.30, 5.30 and 6.00 on Tuesday night/morning. Every time he woke up screaming like somone was trying to murder him...he arched his back, he escaped his swaddle, he sucked on his hands...he had to be rocked and patted back to sleep.
Wednesday night was better...but only just. He started feeding properly again on Wednesday and last night was a huge improvement. Now his nose is running like a tap and he has a rattly chest and a cough...poor little mite. He wakes himself up during the day coughing and will only catnap. Hoping this cold (which his sister so generously shared) is not long lived. 

I don't like being this sleep deprived...
