Thank you Mr. Diamond!

May 22, 2006

I owe Neil Diamond a debt of gratitude. The other night (I’m still recovering from the past couple of them) Juliana woke up at about 1:00 screaming and inconsolable. This is unusual for her, because she sleeps a long stretch at night and settles down immediately with nursing. I tried nursing, standing, swaying, Bach. I got some Hylands teething tablets and gave them to her and tried the above again, but she wasn’t having any of it. Finally I decided to turn on one of her favorites, though it is not necessarily appropriate for a mid-night waking. Sweet Caroline did the trick and after she settled down, I popped her into her sling, replayed Sweet Caroline and then laid my now sleeping, but still hiccupy-breathing babe back into bed where she slept for another couple of hours. I still don’t know what was bothering her. Was it gas or very intermittent teething? Who knows, but that Neil, he sure knows how to work the ladies.
