Sweet Jesus do I miss a full nights sleep
I knew having a newborn that I needed to say goodbye to my precious 10 hour sleep stretches.
I need my sleep.
I seriously am someone you don't want to be around without it.
When he was born he had jaundice.
Basically every baby has it he just had a serious case of it and slept ALL the time.
I was in heaven.
3 weeks later he turned into a devil child.
Screaming non stop for 3-4 hours at a time.
To say I was overwhelmed is an understatement.
Thank the lord we are passed that.
However this sleeping issue is something I cant quite grasp.
Sometimes he is amazing sleeps 9 hour stretches at a time. Other time he is very fussy all night long, as in needs his paci put in, jumping around, not quite settled.
We have a bedtime routine, bath then feed around 7/730.
He will sleep until 130/2 then wake up again at 530am. Then there are nights he wakes up 3-4 times a night.
I'm not sure how you moms are getting your babies to sleep all night.
We are starting the transition from the co-sleeper to the crib tonight, I feel like he needs his own space.
Any thoughts on this/suggestions are welcome:)
