2 weeks ago things were great- DS was sleeping in his crib at night for a 6-8 hour stretch, then another 3-4 hours. He was also napping during the day pretty well in his swing or bouncy seat. However, last week he caught a cold and started waking up more at night and has had to sleep upright on me because of the congestion (so sad!). Plus his daytime naps started tanking. I had a great Eat Play Sleep routine going. Now, he'll either not take a nap for hours, or if he does fall asleep he wakes up after a half hour. Adding to this, I went back to work 2 weeks ago and my MIL is graciously coming over and watching him for us. While I totally appreciate what she's doing for us, I wish she'd follow my advice more. With the naps I am pretty much relentless and will try and try and try everything I can to make him sleep. I think she just picks him right up the second he fusses, even though I told her he does that before falling asleep sometimes. So, he barely naps all day with her, then when I get home he's super fussy, sleeps like crap at night, and then the cycle starts over again. Arghh! I'm hoping this is due to his congestion or a growth spurt... Last night he was up every 3 hours to eat, minus the hour we lost because DST I am so freaking exhausted!
