Ok, it’s official
I am sleep deprived.
I feel like a raving lunatic.
The boy is asleep right now. He went down at first at 830 as usual after our bedtime routine(bath, massage, feeding).
He woke back up at 845.
Now, Pookah doesn’t cry when he wakes up. He wines a little and brings his legs up and down repeatedly. It sounds like he is about to come through the ceiling when you are downstairs. He never starts to cry really, his whining just gets more frequent, and so does the leg crashing.
I fed him again, and he went right back down. That was 35 minutes ago.
I’ve been doing this for the last few nights, but he has been waking up at 12, 2-3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 9.
For someone who had been getting a 5 to 6 hour stretch for a while there, this is torture. I don’t know what to do! I am hoping that this is a growth spurt. According to kellymom.com it is. He has been eating much much more than usual. He has really been cluster feeding all the time. I hope it’s a growth spurt. That means that there is an end in sight. They are supposed to last 2-3 days, or about a week. Well, we are past 2-3 days, and working on a week. He started this mess last Thursday when my parents came. I was chalking it up to the excitement of the visit and us being out all the time. But noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. He’s still going for it.
I guess I could start sleep training. But I don’t like the idea of crying it out. I am reading a couple of books on the subject, and thinking of a plan. My mother is no help, her solution is FEED THE BOY.
I’m getting desperate. After all, he will be 4 months on Friday. The Pediatrician did say start solids 4-6 months.
I might just try it. 🙁
