I am having a hard time sleeping at night. I am a light sleeper and even more so now that DD is here. Right now DD is sleeping for different amounts of times so I can't predict when she will be getting up next. Usually I like to anticipate when she will be hungry so I can make a bottle before she starts wailing.
But last night I heard her stirring on the monitor and checked the video monitor and she was moving a good amount so I thought she was waking up, this was about 3.5 hours since she fell asleep. By the time I made the bottle she was back asleep having never fully woken up. She didn't wake up to eat until 1.5 hours later. In that 1.5 hours though I was constantly waking up to check on her.
I am thinking I should turn down the monitor so I will only hear her if she is screaming, but I kind of hate to do this. I love that she is sleeping for longer periods of time, but it would be nice if I could sleep for these same stretches now that I am back to work.
What do you ladies do?
