her non-sleeping at night just goes on and on... Last night she cried on and off for over an hour before going to sleep then was up every 2 hours after that. A couple times I let her be to see if she'd go back to sleep, nope, she started crying harder and harder. I nursed at 3:30 and she finally fell into a deep sleep, but of course I had to wake her at 6 to go to work. I don't think it's hunger, she just snacks a little and falls back asleep.
RIght now she sleeps better for naps (swaddled) than at night. She's almost 6 months so I'm not going back to the swaddle, but I think its the pacifier causing all this grief. She plucks it out herself when she's trying to fall asleep, then gets mad that it's gone and she can't find it to put it back. I tried to see how long she'd cry if I didn't put it back in but it escalated for over 20 mins and she was not calming down, so I ended up nursing her to sleep. She seems to need the pacifier so bad, I feel bad thinking about taking it away, but I can't do this every night. She has had great nights in the past when I never have to go in there and put it back, AND she'd go down drowsy, so why this horrible regression now????
I'm just venting, maybe other's can commiserate with me. DS never went through this, he was STTN pretty consistently at this point.
