Gwen it out cold on the bed, and I'm sitting here with Elli in the sling, nursing, just like she's been for the last 2+ hours. By the time I get her to sleep, Gwen should wake up. Wash, rinse, repeat for the rest of the night.
And do I have any help in this? No. Why? 'Cause I'm the only one in the house with functioning teats. I'm trying to introduce Elli to a pacifier (better known as a plug), 'cause nursing for this amount of time is known as "Non-nutritive sucking" (aka, sucking for comfort), but so far no go. I'm still waiting for Gwen to get more proficient at latching on before I introduce a plug to her. I'm hoping that the plugs will help me get more sleep.
But in the mean time, I'm tired, I'm cranky, and I really resent the living shit outta the other two sleeping adults in the house!
