Wiggling all night!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

She's asleep, but I am not!  My 2 mo old dd goes to sleep well (nursing a/o rocking, patting, swaddling) she starts out the night in her co-sleeper and usually sleeps there for about 2 hours (tho last night was less than 1).  Often comes into bed and sleeps another hour or two before nursing.  On a good night I get about four hours of sleep this way.  Last night, really none!  After that, I am not able to get her to a sleep state that includes her body being still!  She is asleep and just wiggling around (I'm not surprised, this is how she was in utero :)  She will wake herself up completely if I put her back in her co-sleeper or move all the way away from her.  She is still for some moments and then needs some patting or just my hand on her to stay asleep.  I don't know exactly how much time this is because I am so tired!  Has anyone else had a baby who wiggles all night like this (last night there really was no still sleeping and I pretty much feel like I slept not at all!) 


Please help me sleep in the middle of the night!

No advice. I'm so therre except he's 10 months old. Ga!! He kicks me all night. Last night it was pinching my nipple. He self-soothes by scratching me.


In the middle of the  night when he's crying for the breast, I think "why can't i have one of those babies who needs a reassuring pat and then go back to sleep?"

Me too, with my 3 1/2 mo - drives me crazy! I'm actually starting to question whether cosleeping IS a good idea (we seem to make her restless, and she certainly makes us restless), and I've been pro-cosleeping ever since i learned about it in college. Hope someone has a good idea...
