At almost 2 months old, Davin is still sleeping most of the day. He really only has 2-3 periods per day where he is awake for 1-2 hours each time. But that's not to say that he sleeps peacefully the rest of the time. Most of his sleep is disrupted periods of fussiness. And a lot of the time he is awake, he is also quite fussy.
We've learned that a lot of this is typical in a baby born a month early. He's going to spend the first year of his life playing catch-up. Sleep is a great way to get through it.
We've also figured out part of the reason why he is so fussy: he has a milk protein allergy. That doesn't mean he is allergic to my milk, it means that when I eat dairy products, the proteins are passed through my milk to him, and those proteins cause stomach and digestive pain, gassiness, bloating, and other discomforting side effects. I am now on a dairy-free diet, and his fussiness has lessened. One night while on this dairy-free diet, I made the mistake of giving him some milk that I had leftover from his stay in the hospital that had dairy in it. The fussiness and digestive issues came back strong, so we know that it is indeed a milk protein allergy.
But, despite his fussiness, we love him to pieces. And in his sleep, we can occasionally get a cute smile like this:
