Night time has gotten to be almost as dreadful as it was when he was a newborn. I really think he is trying to kill me with sleep deprivation. He is such an easy and happy baby in the day, but it all changes at night.
Ever since I went to work, his nights have gotten so bad. We put him to bed at 8 last night and he was up every 20 minutes or so until after 10 when I finally fed him again and nursed him to sleep.
Then, he was up about every 2 hours. I fed him each time just because it is the easiest and fastest way to get him to sleep. He doesn't stir once he is done.
This morning he decided he was going to wake up at 5:30 and be up for the day. I was already up for work, but let's just say I have my hair in a wet pony tail.
I don't know what to do. Dh and I are completely dumbfounded. We've scoured the interwebs and we seem to have tried every single solution out there except for CIO. We want to avoid CIO if we can, but this 15lb baby is kicking our butts and we need help.
He is still swaddled. He has to be swaddled otherwise he claws at his face and screams. We have a steady, consistent bedtime routine. We have even tried adjusting his bed time and nothing changes. We've tried rocking to sleep, not rocking to sleep, nursing to sleep, not nursing to sleep, swaddling, not swaddling, white noise, no white noise.
At one point he was sleeping solidly from 8-6. I didn't even mind the 3am feeding he had, but this is an entirely different problem.
Wwyd in this situation?
