As for the poison ivy, I'm on to yet another group of products to try and kill the itching: Ivy-Dry Super worked great on drying up the rash and the first day or two it felt good, but either it or all the other stuff I tried before it really dried out the skin, which meant some serious burning when I applied the Super Ivy-Dry. Right now I'm trying Sarna, but I also have some Aveeno 1% hydrocortisone with oatmeal to try ...
At the risk of jinxing things, I am not the only one who's falling asleep a lot in the house. Celeste is doing a lot better overnight. She still wakes up a few times — and she's up for the day around 5:30 a.m. — but she's dropped one overnight feeding and either self-soothes or can be soothed back to sleep relatively easily. She does have occasional middle-of-the-night freakouts, but generally she's sleeping pretty well and giving us good four- to five-hour stretches of sleep.
But, congratulations on having lots of sleep going on. Maybe your sleepy vibes are affecting Celeste. Hope it keeps up (and the itch doesn't!).
