Leo, day 6
During pregnancy we were debating whether we would have preferred a baby that does not sleep or a baby that does not eat. We both agreed that we would have preferred a baby that does not eat.
We should have kept our mouths shut. Destiny in these circumstances is in fact often spiteful. It in fact made us believe that he listened to us - and in fact we got a baby that (so far) does sleep like a stone. But the price for that is that he does not eat as much as he should. The irony is that Leonardo does not eat as much as he should because he falls in a sound sleep during breastfeeding.
Giuseppina, who you met a few posts ago, taught us a few tricks to keep Leo awake during the breastfeeding. Unfortunately after a few successes, Leo seems to have understood the tricks, and to have become indifferent to the various stimuli.
So every day we need to rack our brains to find out a new way of keeping him awake.
Today we were pretty successful by pumping music in his ears (the authors that he seemed to prefer were Giuliano Palma and the Intillimani).
