Last night was our worst night yet and I'm crazy with no sleep. She went down for 30 minutes, then woke up and it took 2.5 hours to get her to fall asleep for longer than 5 minutes, then she was up again 1 hour later.
We can get her to fall asleep rocking but within minutes of putting her in the pack and play, she starts sad crying (not screaming). So then we soothe her to sleep in there but once we stop, she starts sad crying again. At one point, we turned on a dim light to check her over and make sure nothing was wrong, and she starts smiling and cooing.
Of course I've read vague complaints on here about sleep regression, but is this really how bad it is? Or am I doing something wrong. It can't be good for her to keep getting only 7 hours of sleep a night right? Please commiserate with me!
