So. Tired. Hopefully there's a light at the end of this sleepless tunnel soon.
Make it stop ugh you guys im still swaddling at night am I the only one?? Idk how to stop if I try to put him to bed with an arm or two out he freaks out and is just swinging them around. I don't swaddle for naps but I'm usually holding him haha
@EmmyMommy123 lol that's a good way to look at the insanity of this phase!I'm over this just like all you ladies. We're at 2-4 wakings the past 4 weeks and she eats at each one for a good bit so im trying to survive through it. Have had a couple nights up every 1.5 hours. I am so ready to rip DH a new one if he doesn't pitch in with rocking and soothing. He's a night owl and comes to get me when LO wakes up, which yea, she's hungry. But dangit, she is so soooo hard to put down and cries the minute I put her down even if she's started to doze when nursing. Help me out since you're up anyways instead of coming to get me 5 minutes after I get back under the comfy covers. There's a reason sleep deprivation is a torture technique....this is ROUGH.
Although as I said here before, babe has always been a crappy sleeper, we too had a week around 13-14 weeks where he suddenly slept 5-6.5 hours straight for 5/7 days and then it all went away and has been back to bad ever since, and often much worse. It's hard for me to pin point a regression or say he really had/is having one because bad is just his norm. Falling asleep on his own or sleep training seems out of the question as he just doesn't settle unless being held and it's not just a little fussing for 5 minutes, it's screaming for an hour even with me trying to comfort him every few minutes (and I just don't agree that screaming like that is ok). Every time he gets close with self soothing it's like he realizes he's falling asleep and then freaks out. I hope there is a light at the end of the tunnel for all of us, they've got to sleep eventually, right??
My baby too, there is no WAY I can sleep train her with all the crying. Everything you just said is exactly what I'm going through. I wonder if they will be sleep trainable or if we'll be bouncing them until they're 16? Does your do the same thing in the car?
@Knottie84607381:My LO doesn't wake in the night, but the few times that she has, I have my husband hold her while I pump (first). I get what I need, and then nurse her. She never has a problem with getting what she needs after I pump. Try that!
