I'm looking for any ideas I can get on helping my little man to connect sleep cycles.
He has had a rough first year with six months of colic, ear infections and reflux. All are now gone but his sleep has not improved. I think he got used to all the waking up from pain and discomfort, and I just don't know how to get him to connect his sleep cycles. I have tried many things and am out of ideas. He won't take anyone but me at night without screaming until he passes out so I am on duty 24/7. I love him and am doing my best to wait it out but I am now truly struggling with my mental state as I am up 10-20 times per night every single night.
Any gentle ideas are welcome. All the docs just say cio... there must be another way.
We have seen a chiro on and off. We are actually just trying a new one right now. It has been a few months since we've seen one. The first chiro really helped with his colic but none of it helped with his reflux.
Yes, he has always slept poorly. Never more than 2 hours since he was born (except 2 or 3 three hour flukes over the last year) and about 5 months ago when the ear infections came for two months straight. Then it went to every 45 minutes with the odd 90 minute stretch every few nights.
