My DD used to sleep 5-6 hr stretches until she turned 4 months old and all went to hell. I read a lot about sleep regressions and developmental changes that happen during that time, so I wasn't worried. Yeah, the lack of sleep was horrible, but I thought I could just wait it out (at that time she was waking up every 2 hrs). At five months she learned how to roll around and since then she wakes up every hour. I thought she would start sleeping longer again because she mastered rolling. Now, she doesn't roll anymore at night (wakes up on the same position). I nurse her back to sleep in about 15 minutes at the time. I can't nurse her laying down bc she has a high palate, so I have to be awake waiting for her to fall asleep.
Is this normal? DH and I are so so tired. I keep telling him it will pass, but he thinks it is something that she learned and needs to change. My MIL even suggested CIO which I told her we are not doing. Off course DH feels pressured to do something about it because it has been impacting the way we function. Please tell me it will get better! Is there anything I can do?
