So Blysse is on her second leap. Her first seemed to be so easy and we barely noticed it except she had a seeming growth spurt during it for a day or two. So these "leaps" should be no big deal right? No such luck. She has been so very clingy and she startles easily now. Her crying has turned to tears and she wants to literally nurse around the clock. We bed share so that part isn't such a big deal. Minus the part where from 4 am til 6 am she tosses and turns and wants to nurse constantly. She goes back to sleep around 6. Great! right when I need to get up and get the kids up and around. Needless to say I have been a little tired and crabby the last couple days.
If you have a young child under 2 I recommend this book and there is even an ap for it. It explains when the leap will happen, how long it will happen, what to expect during the leap and what to look for after the leap is over. It has given me a lot of clarity about what I should expect to see when she goes through these leaps and has even helped me to prepare for what will happen.
