I have hit a wall. This newborn is not sleeping for any length of time, so neither am I. I am so tired. I tried it all last night (in addition to all the things I've tried othe rnight, right?). Everything is tried post nursing. I swaddled him and put him in the side care crib. I swaddled him and tried to put him next to me. I left him unswaddled next to me to sleep. He wakes up as soon as he's put down and starts grunting and moving. I try to ignore it and hope he'll just go to sleep but he works himself into crying. And then ofcourse, I nurse him again.
He's nursing almost constantly all night, like every half hour or 45 minutes, but as soon as he's done nursing he's awake.
I slept from 10-12:30 on the couch upstairs while he slept in his swing and then some with DH in his arms on the couch. After that, any sleep I got was interuppted every half hour or 45 minutes at least. Oh my goodness. I don't know what to do differently.
