Emily will be 7 months on December 2nd, and honestly I'm pretty lucky that she's such a great baby. Sure, there are rough days and we deal with it however we can. It makes it easy that I've got her night schedule perfected.
She goes to bed around 9 or 10. I wake her up before I go to bed to feed her since I go to bed around 2am. She then wakes up around 8 or 9 and takes her first nap around 11. She wakes up around 1and then takes her last nap around 5. She's easy to figure out!
Tonight was different though. She went to bed around 11 because her last nap ran kind of late. She woke up at 130am and I let her cry a little because it was the sleepy cry where she usually just whines and falls back to sleep. Only she didn't fall back to sleep this time.
I got her up, changed, fed, and burped her like I do every night and she fell asleep on me. I laid her in bed and the screaming started. I let her cry for a few minutes and it wasn't the type of cry where she would go back to sleep, so I got her up and tried to feed her a little more but she refused. The moment I layed her back on my chest she stopped crying and went straight to sleep. Laid her down and more screaming.
Eventually I just took a warm bath with her, turned the heater on and got her dressed again. She's asleep now finally over 2 hours later.
No idea what was wrong. It got resolved eventually so I'm thankful.
What do you ladies do on rough nights? What is your LOs sleeping schedules like? Any tips to share that might help that some us might find helpful?
