Hi Ladies, I'm curious what your bedtime routine is with your LO? It continues to be the most challenging part of our day.
Last night, starting at 845P I nursed my LO (just over 2 weeks old) for a long time, then changed and swaddled him, rocked and read him a book, and tried to put him down to sleep. Between crying, wanting to be held, wanting to feed more (which I don't believe because he literally spits it all back up moments afterward -- I realized this after 4 short on-demand feedings last night, all followed by spitting up)--, being wide awake, etc., I finally got him settled at 1200AM, just minutes before his next regular feeding!
Taking 3+ hours to get him to bed seems to be a regular occurrence, which is frustrating because I'd love to be getting some sleep in between those feedings. We haven't used a pacifier yet, which I'm thinking about trying.
Does anyone have any advice on how to avoid the nightly meltdown?
