my son is almost 9 months, always been a crappy sleeper...i've posted on here a few times complaining about being exhausted.
recently it seems he prefers my husband to put him to bed. he used to nurse to sleep in bed with me but now he just tries to roll over and crawl away while nursing over and over and over again. but if daddy rocks him to sleep he just puts his head down on dh's shoulder and conks out after like 40 seconds of rocking.
recently though he'll go to sleep for my husband by rocking, he'll bring him into me and i'll nurse him while he's still asleep. but now he's started doing the same roll over and crawl away thing so my husband has to take him to go be rocked again. sometimes this cycle of rock--fall asleep--nurse--wake self up by crawling--need to be rocked again can take like 2 hours. we're kind of getting sick of it...
i mean he's a proficient crawler now, so what is he doing? practicing in his sleep?
he's also started babbling in his sleep, too. he'll be dead asleep, and then out of nowhere will go "na-na-na-na-da-ba" or something and roll over and settle back down. it's kind of cute...except it wakes me up.
when he finishes a night-nursing session he rolls away from the boob and kind of arches his back. i'm kind of wondering if it's reflux -- the restless sleeping, the back-arching, and the waking up when being put down (he seems to prefer sleeping being held with his head on dh's shoulder). so what do i do if i suspect reflux? eliminate dairy and see if that helps? or call his ped and get a scrip for zantac or something?
oh, co-sleeping....you and your adventures.
sorry for the rambling post...
