Happy Jack

Ever since we started Jack on a probiotic, he has been one happy camper. Jack is a frequent nurser (every 2 hours during the day), his naps tend to be short (30 minutes... unless he's in a motion-making device), and he's not sleeping long at night (2 hrs at most for the past few days). However, Jack is almost always happy when he is awake. His evening fussy times have magically disappeared this past week (to return, I'm sure), and now his mornings (gas-free) are pretty good, too.

Things Jack likes:
  • Milk
  • Nursing
  • Cuddling
  • Kisses (but not on the nose)
  • Being up on our shoulders
  • Being in the Ergo carrier
  • Being on his playmat in front of the mirror
  • Being sung or read to
  • Movement
  • Outdoor breezes
  • Sitting in warm bath water
  • Having his hair washed
  • Looking at faces
Things Jack does not seem to care so much about:
  • Whether he's in clothes or not
  • Whether his diaper needs changing or not
  • Ambient noise
  • Ambient light
Things Jack does not like:
  • Being hungry, having gas, or needing to burp
  • Going in his car seat
  • Being stationary for too long
  • The Moby Wrap or Baby Bjorn carriers
  • Zane's shrill bark
  • When I yell at Tori while he's nursing
  • Being dipped / raised-lowered too quickly
  • Getting out of the bath water
  • When his face gets wet
