I feel like I shouldn't even comment here because Felix is almost 14 weeks and STILL doesn't nap unless being held. "You cannot spoil a baby." Okay, I get it, but when does that end? I mean, we started childcare full time and perhaps that will help initiate more of a schedule, but right now, we are pretty much struggling with sleep--day and night. I am convinced that I am genetically programmed to birth troubled sleepers.
The biggest issue is that the moment he sets down, his eyes pop open and he is awake. So, we tried side sleeping for some time. Stopped working. Now, the only way he sleeps soundly is either on us or on his tummy. I know, I know...I just wish so badly he could sleep on his back.
Our biggest problem is still GI. I think he still struggles with digestion. We started probiotics a week ago and are hoping that helps, but it's not that he cries at night, he just twists and turns and is restless about every hour or so. If we don't tend to him, he winds up and cries.
I just keep reminding myself he won't be sleeping in our bed come 7th grade or passed out on my chest on the eve of high school graduation...
