The 2015 report is out!

The Central African Republic peacekeeping spokesman told me some shocking things about the recent allegations that a blue helmet raped a little girl there.
In his personal opinion, he said, the allegation of rape is not credible. “When peacekeepers arrived at the site to arrest [Haroun Gaye], they were attacked immediately with heavy, heavy weapons,” he said. “I’m sorry, but I don’t think someone would think of raping someone at this time. I think they will think of how to escape. He will think, ‘I’m a human being before I’m a man.’ When you’re under fire, I think you think of saving your life. Really, really, really in this situation you don’t think of a girl.”

Totally impossible.

Why this is part of a larger problem -- my new story out today in Foreign Policy magazine:

Greetings all! Need help with my 12 week old now I’m back to full-time work. Not expecting through the night but would love to minimize the evening drama...he’s a catnapper (despite best varsity swing technique!) and overtired by “bedtime," needing 2+ hours of rocking before he’ll give us a 4-5 hour stretch. Yikes! 

His routine: After an early am feed he sleeps until around 8am.  He catnaps around 9.30 for 30-40 minutes (Early he is amenable to being put down while dozy, but not later.) Thereafter he manages between 40 minutes and 1.5 hours awake, but his naps remain v short. He’s fed BM roughly every 3 hours until his evening feed around 6pm when I get back from work. 

Then what?! By 7 he is tired and grumpy. We’ve tried keeping him up another hour before commencing bedtime routine. He sleeps the usual 30-40 minutes then fights it till 10.30 before conking out, either in the swing or co-sleeping because he’s tired me out too. But if we let him nap at 7, he’s still grumpy when he wakes up and bedtime is pushed back till past 10. 

When he was really little I would handle fussy evenings with constant feeding, Netflix before co-sleeping, but feel we should be starting better habits now he’s at 3 months. Do we try and tinker or just wait him out? Please advise!
