Hello all... here's a brief explanation of my situation:
DD is 3 months today. She's exclusively BF and we co-slept until 2 nights ago. She started her fussy period in the evening at 6 weeks old, but it was managable... just fussed for awhile and then she would go down and did fabulously overnight.
That fussy period now has ventured into an all day thing. She's generally pretty relaxed and happy, but when she's tired and wants to sleep she becomes a total mess. I wear her most of the day, and in the beginning she would sleep on me just great, just doze off for a couple of hours. Now she cries and cries and nothing I do helps. Then she'll only sleep for about 30 minutes at a time and she's exhausted again within a short time.
Friends are encouraging me to CIO. I did it yesterday and I'm sickened by it.
Any advice? She needs her sleep during the day, she's exhausted and cranky.
BTW, I also have a 21 mo old (great sleeper), so there's only so much I can do without leaving him alone to fend for himself.
