I don't know what to do. He'll only sleep for 20 min., wake up, and he's raring to go.
I nurse him and he falls asleep while I'm doing that. I go to lay him down, sometimes he'll stay asleep (20 min), othertimes he'll wake up. If he wakes up, I'll try to nurse him until he falls asleep again and put him down. Again, sometimes it works and he sleeps for 20 min, othertimes he wakes up and is wide awake. About once every 2 weeks he will sleep for 1-3 hours, but it's very rare.
This happens with both AM and PM naps.
He sleeps from 6:30pm-5:30am.
So, 11 hours of sleep at night and about 40 min of daytime sleep. It's awful, he's exhausted.
I've tried laying next to him until he's asleep, he just cries and cries and cries. I have him swaddled, I have a white noise machine, I have the room blacked out.
In the meantime he has a 4-year-old sister whose brain rots away as she watches TV for 40-80 min per day while I fruitlessly try to get him to nap.
Suggestions? He's exhausted and the guilt I feel is, literally, making me sick.
