"A new baby is like the beginning of all things--wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities."
Nope - my LO is still up 3 times a night. We aren't that far into solids (we've only tested 4). Very little gets in and she is still nursing...plus, she is clearly In a growth spurt. I think she really is hungry when she gets up, though she is suffering a little separation anxiety maybe as well.
two nights ago she slept 6 hours straight after a day of refusing to nap and struggling to stay awake hours after bedtime. She went down at midnight. Those 6 hours were hard won.
the week before that she was up every two hours. She is all over the map. DH and I try to out her to bed at the same time every night after a chill routine. We try to get her down for naps before she is overtired and on a schedule....and she is just awake. I'm concerned I'm not handling it the right way....but ya, to answer your question..we are up.
A started waking up 2x/night this week. At first, I think it was b/c we moved her to her crib...but the last 2 or 3 nights, she's clearly been hungry, so I'm hoping it's just a growth spurt.
I'm too exhausted to even play Candy Crush during her nighttime feedings, so I wouldn't be able to form coherent sentences for a LNCI repsonse. ;-)
uconnhuskie007:it's a crapshoot in our house - sometimes he'll STTN and sometimes hes up every 2 hours.
Noa just started waking up again a couple weeks ago, around 1-2 and 4-5. She used to go all the way to 4-5.
I am such a zombie about feeding her and going back to bed a lot of the time I barely remember it let alone log on the interwebs.
I am hoping she'll start going all the way through the night again soon!
You are not alone.
We have had some 5 - 6 hour stretches recently but this past week has been really bad, like worse than newborn bad. I hope its teething or one of those stormy weeks or something.
This too shall pass.
Can I just say how infinitely happy this list of responses has made me. All of my coworkers and my brother and SIL have been telling me I'm ruining this child by not CIO at this stage. Just yesterday my coworker told me I was saddling this child with lifelong sleep issues by feeding her at night. To see few LNCIs the last few weeks had me thinking that everyone here had successfully sleep trained their kid by 6 months and I was just destroying my LO by feeding her at night, and popping in pacifiers and comforting her during her occasional freak outs. In my mind, I see progress in her self-settling and willingness to go to sleep without hysterical crying - but to the outside observer...or at least to the people I work with, it looks like I'm training her to sleep in my bed to the age 18 and live the exhausting life of an insomniac.
To know that so many other people are having a similar experience makes me feel so much better. Her patterns are normal. It is going to work out.
