My almost 3 year old who still nurses wakes in the wee hours (used to be 4 am now it is earlier). Generally when she wakes at night she nurses a few minutes and then turns away to sleep. In the early, early morning she just tosses and turns and switches nipples and squirms and just doesn't seem to be able to really get back to sleep. She doesn't talk or anything she just moves. Actually, I realize as I am writing this that she wakes earlier now that we dropped naps. BUT she has been doing the 1/2 awake squirming for a LONG time.
Is this a typical pattern? Someone did post once that they thought their allergic child woke at 4 am. I have tried to be aware and can't find a connection but I have not been recording foods or anything. Do you think this could be from being in an uncomfortable bed?
I am so tired and know I should night wean for my own sake but actually I am not sure it would help this early waking.
Thanks for any advice.
