Katie is playing a game with me.

I sit her in the bouncy seat.
I get to type a few sentences.
She cries.
I pick her up and give her the bottle.
She takes a little then falls asleep in my shoulder.
I sit her in the bouncy seat...
Lather, Rinse, repeat

see also: The Wonders Of Parenthood.

The one thing that I never minded missing about not having Mere around for the first nine months of her life was that I didn't have to deal with the Goofy Sleep Schedules part of babyhood.

I have waaaaaaaay too many sleep problems to deal with, without adding in that.

Parents are easily trained, and usually learn very quickly.

Yes, be careful she doesn't teach you to insta-feed her. If it gets to be a pattern like that, break the pattern.

Obviously - an evil child. :-))
Or, of course, she will grow up to be a personal fitness trainer. :-))

Snuggly-type carriers are Your Friend. :) When Joseph was newborn, I did all the work - phone calls, e-mails, research, typing, everything that didn't require the presence of others - for an entire international adoption with him sleeping crosswise on my lap.

The tummy troubles (possible cause of stop-and-start eating) do settle down in time.

I just ordered a sling.
I tried making one, but there are a few bugs in the system.

Roper suggested that the issue was not food but temperature. She'd settle when she was warm and wake up in the bouncy seat when she got cold.
She's in a blanket sleeper today.
