Luckily, Sienna is a phenomenal sleeper. Lately, she's been sleeping 11-12 hours straight through the night! After a couple bouts of teething, we've been enjoying a wonderful string of good night's sleep. Last night, however, we fed Sienna something new with dinner. She had a few pieces of roasted zucchini. Apparently, the zucchini (in addition to several green beans she'd eaten early in the day) upset her stomach. She woke up a couple times and cried like she was actually in pain! Since she's not much of a crier, I knew she really wasn't feeling well.
When she woke up at 11:00 pm, I had just drifted off to sleep. I woke up quickly and disconnected my pump before dashing into her room. Here's my dilemma with the pump... several of my cozy pajama pants don't have pockets. When I'm wearing them around the house, I'll usually stick my pump in the band of my underwear! This works fine when I'm sitting around and relaxing. When Sienna wakes up and needs some extra rockin...
Neck pain in the morning can be due to straining the neck while asleep. During certain stages of sleep, the muscles are contracted. One option would be to use a firm flat mattress and a flat pillow—or preferably no pillow in those cases where morning neck pain is prominent. I would strongly recommend you describe this condition to your primary care physician so that he or she can refer you to the appropriate specialist who can properly evaluate you and review your options.

We had about 12 inches of snow or more and five foot snow drifts. The super cold air is coming down from Canada now. ( I don't know how you take that cold, cold air Lene! ) Wind chill to be -23 in the morning.
We bellied out our Arctic Cat today, so we started up the old backhoe and made one trip down the drive and back. The steering on the backhoe is messed up now, so we put it back in the out building and used the Arctic Cat to clean up the mess. That took a while, as our driveway is a quarter of a mile long.
I decided my husband had been out there long enough, so I grabbed a snow shovel and started in on a couple of five foot drifts. Then I carried in some fire wood. That finally got me. I have taken my Tramadol and my Soma and feel better now. I know I shouldn't do these kind of things, but it was a bit of an emergency.
Hope everyone is safe and warm. This was a big, bad blizzard and affected a lot of people.
