So we are trying to get Jacob on a schedule. We are doing a 3 hour rotation during the day (eat 30 min, awake an hour, sleep 1 1/2 hours). Then at night, we put him down after his 10 o'clock feed (usually about 10:45 when all is said and done). He then wakes up around 2-3 to eat which is fine but then wakes up again around 5. He is not hungry (as he just ate 2 hours prior) nor wet... he literally just wants to be cuddled back to sleep and when we do, he only sleeps for another 30-45 minutes. As he is almost 3 months old (granted he spent the first 2 months in the hospital), I don't think it is too much to expect him to sleep 8 hours at night with one waking to eat. As I said above, right now he goes 3 1/2 hours and then 2 more. What can we do??? Room is dark, baby crack machine and humidifier on. We have let him cry it out, but he will cry HARD for 20 minutes. Like hyperventilating hard. He has never once fell back asleep on his own after one of these crying sessions.Help!!!
Aiden Jude is on his way!
