Being at home full-time with Lenny, my day is largely structured around his schedule. However, despite trying to keep to a predictable routine for meals, naps and bedtime, an infant can be, well, unpredictable. We’ve been going through a clingy phase lately and, combined with what I believe is a growth spurt, recently our days have been less ruled by routine and more by the needs of my growing baby. Taking the predictability out of our day is sometimes freeing, and sometimes challenging. It can be exhausting being on-demand to a clingy, needy baby.
