Last night, I had to take care of Ryan since wife will be in Singapore for the entire week. My youngest sister who stayed with us was a great help. And the pacifier again worked wonders. The babysitter told us that Ryan was extremely cranky the entire day. I was like "Oh No! Please! Not on the first night that I have to take care of him myself!'
Fearing the worst, I fetched him home. Close to 7pm, he wanted his milk. Prepared his milk and my sister helped to feed him. He was so tired while drinking. Once finished, he was about to go into his cranky sleepy mode which normally would take quite a while of carrying, patting, bouncing, walking and singing to get him to sleep. Last night, we have our secret weapon ready. We gave him the PACIFIER. He felt asleep soundly within minutes. That was even before 8pm.
He was sleeping in the living hall while we watched Amazing Race. He was supposed to have his next feed between 9:30pm to 10:00pm. So I carried him up at about 10pm, changed his diaper and was quite ready for him to wake up for his milk. He was so tired and slept soundly, that he did not make a single sound, slept through the entire process of diaper changing and continued sleeping after I put him on the bed. He only woke up at 4:30am this morning for his milk and happily went back to sleep after that.
