i just don't know what to do. My LO went from months of waking every hour, to sleeping 4 hour chunks in the Merlin Magic Slee Suite, to now sleeping like 2-3 1/2 hours then waking up and demanding to be nursed back to sleep or his will screams and cry for hours (while I'm trying so hard to rock him back to sleep). I'm not for crying it out (when it goes on so long), he sleeps in our room, and I'm fine with nursing but every 4 hours. That's how he eats during the day. Anyways this is more of a vent. I just feel like a failure at night because I hate the crying and I pick him up.
Last night I put him down at 7:45. He was asleep. He woke up at 8 and cried till I rocked him to sleep. Then slept till 10:30. Well since it hadn't been 4 hours I tried to get him back to sleep....2 hours later her finally went back to sleep. I just kept rocking him as he fought me but I felt like if I gave in and nursed then he would know that if he throws a fit he will eventually get nursed
so he gave in at 12:30. Slept till 3:30 then nursed and woke at 6:30.
I know I need to work on sleeping but it's hard when I have to work. Ok I'm done with my rant. I'm just trying to hang in there and begin baby steps to sleep training.
Thanks for listening
PS if I would of just nursed at 10:30 it would of all be solved
