Thanks! Well, when James turned 3 mos old he slept for 7,8,sometimes 9 or 10 hours at a stretch! all of a sudden - weird - then at 4 mos he started waking again and it's been frequent wakings ever since. We got the NCSS and did a sleepy plan (I never did a sleepy log cause i am very nearsighted and too lazy to get glasses, write stuff down, etc, while james is yelling)
that did help to some degree, but when teething began in earnest we went downhill again....Every night we do bath, sleepy song, then breastfeed in bed - I sneak out after he's asleep. we have an early bedtime (7 to 8 - even 6 or 6:30 if he's rubbing eyes and sleepy then) he isn't always able to go down for his naps - he's needed to be nursed or driven in car or walked in bjorn to sleep (i could never get the hang of the sling with him
: ) ever since he was about 2 weeks old...
he often wakes up crying - first time it happened he was in my lap - i was so surprised - i thougt he must be in pain or something, he was only a few weeks old..but no - he just wakes up crying alot. i always get to him very quicklyl when he cries...i dont like to let him cry. the only time he's every cried when i can't get to him is in the car when i can't pull over, etc.
sigh. i just think he's a poor sleeper and it will get better, but we are all sick with a lousy cold - he's got a barky cough, and working on his top teeth - so i guess were in for a rough few days.
sorry to ramble - sleep deprived and a rather anxious first time mom...
thanks for listening. i am a frequent lurker in this forum...nice to share with other moms who dont advocate cio. my PEPS group all do cio in one form or another and they think i'm a pushover i think.
