So, my precious 10 month old DS will sleep for a short stretch (@ 3 hours) and then will wake up and stay up for 1 1/2-2 hours every night!!!
He wakes up, I nurse him, and then he pops off the boob, gives me a smile and is wide awake ready to play. I don't turn the lights on or talk to him. I just hold him and he just grabs me and plays in my lap. If I put him in his crib, he starts crying immediately and then we start over again. I am not comfortable co-sleeping with him anymore because I feel like I fall into such a deep sleep and he is on the go now, that I am worried he will wake up and fall out of the bed.
This goes on once or twice a night and I am just so exhausted! We will not let DS cry it out, so what else can I do to get him to fall asleep? He is in a pretty good routine during the day so I don't quite know what else to try.
I would love any suggestions or ideas that you may have that worked with your babies. I really am fine with getting up a few times to feed him, I just need him to go back to sleep!
Thanks in advance- please send good sleep vibes my way!!!!!!!!!!!!
