I feel like I'm losing my mind here. Spawn doesn't sleep like the average infant. Today was way worse than usual, only two naps lasting longer than 20 minutes, but most days he manages to be up for about 2 1/2-4 hours before powering down for around two hours. He's easier to put to sleep at night but even then if I manage to put him down without him realizing it, it's still only for two hours at most. Basically I'm at the end of my rope here.
He's EBF and I don't drink tons of caffeine. He seems to be going through the awesome PURPLE crying period so he cries during the awake periods, but he'll also spend a chunk of the time fairly content.
I started him on the Gerber Soothe drops tonight so I'm hoping they work, but anyway...
What do you do to help put your overtired baby to sleep? I know normal is BS, but does anyone have experience with am infant that spends most of their time awake? Basically - I need a fresh perspective on what I can do and some reassurance that this will pass.
