DS wakes up three to four times a night, and I nurse him back to sleep. He has always been amazing at falling back asleep. Around 4, I nurse him back to sleep in my bed and we wake up around 7:30. He won't allow DH to soothe him back to sleep at night.
For three nights this week, DS has woken up and stayed awake for an hour or two. This has been very frustrating for me, as sleep deprivation causes me to be irrationally angry with him. I have never wanted to sleep train, but I feel like he is pushing me toward it.
I am writing to see if any of you have any tips or experience with wakefulness at night. Perhaps it will just go away in a couple of days, but it has caused me to question my attachment leanings. DS is 12.5 months. Thank you.
