Hi all! Please forgive if this post is a rambling mess-I'm super sleep deprived. My wee one must be in the midst of the dreaded 4 month sleep regression
Before the regressions: She'd sleep 6-7 hours (from around 8-2am), waking for a quick meal then back to bed until 4-5am, quick awake and back down until around 6:30am.
Now, she's asleep by 8. Awake at 10:30pm to eat. Awake again at 1:30am-typically for around 2.5 hrs. She eats and fusses a bit during this time. Then asleep for another hour or so until she wants the boob again.
She's on and off the boob all night. We have been co-sleeping up to this point in the RnP (now the PnP) in our room. But we've started bedsharing because of her non-stop desire to be next to me. (If I don't lay down with her, I'd be awake AND out of bed. At least I can be awake in bed, right?!)
I'm really not sure what to do! I'm concerned that I'm developing a really bad sleep habit with her nursing at will during the night (adamwife- I'm looking at you! :-) ) but I'm not ready to move her into her own room yet. I'd really prefer her to sleep in her pack and plan (in our room) but if I try and put her in there, she wakes up and gets pissed. She's not even really "nursing"- she's just comfort suckling.
I've been trying to get her to use the paci to help go back to sleep but she just winds up pushing it out in an effort to get her hand in her mouth and then she gets upset.
She's 19 weeks. I'm not sure what to do! Anyone with experience with this- what did you do?
I should add this regression has been going on for nearly 2 weeks now. Hoping it will end soon before too many bad habits set in!
