Tell me about it....

DD is 9 months today and the last 3 nights she has slept very bad. We co-sleep and she has wanted to nurse all night. She also wakes up crying several times a night and the rest of the night she is restless and moving about, pulling hair, ect. She acts like she has had too much caffeine and just can not settle. I have not had any caffeine since getting pregnant. I am used to nursing her several times a night, but this is exhausting. Please tell me it will pass, quickly.

There is one thing that has changed.... we are starting to put her to bed on the floor and then moving her into bed with us when we go to bed. That started Sat. night.

I posted asking about this last week and got no response. So I'll respond to you and say, "Man it sucks, huh?" It passed in the third week of the ninth month. My internet research indicates that it's a growth spurt.

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.

If it is a growth spurt, why not just eat a bunch.... she is also crying and restless and just driving me crazy.....

yeah, it does suck, but good to know it can pass in a few weeks (if I make it that long....)

Thanks for the reply....

Well if you think about it, growing hurts. Don't you remember growing pains when you were a kid? I hated them and I was always a pain in the butt for a while. Something inside you feels achy and wrong.

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.
