Wiggles has gone back to some terrible sleep habits. He now will sleep for a MAX of 3 hours at a time. And has decided 22 minutes to 2 hours at a time is better for night. Sigh. He had been sleeping at least 4 hours in a stretch at night...usually more like 5 or 6. 8 hours in a stretch a handful of times.
And we're at our wits end. It's only been 2 nights of this so far, but after 13 weeks of poor sleep...it's enough. And it is SO frustrating to try to Google information on it. Because almost every post I find suggests the baby is hungry. He truly, truly, doesn't seem hungry most of these wakings. And this little guy is WELL fed. He went from the 25% in weight at birth to the 75%. I'm not starving him. But even more frustrating, I feel like the people posting and the people answering often start off with, he was sleeping 8 hours a night starting at 8 weeks...my son started sleeping 10 hours a night at 5 weeks, so trust my advice, etc. etc. And I just feel cheated. And like none of these people truly understand or can help in our situation. Because we're going on 13 weeks...with 4 times that the little guy has slept an 8 hour stretch.
Now, I know I'm not the only one with a more difficult baby. And the fact we've even got those 4 times probably puts us better off than some. But...can't we get a break!? I find myself wondering what I'm doing wrong. How I can make it better. But so far nothing is coming up. No amount of Googling or asking other mothers - friends and my own - has come up with anything. As far as they can tell...I'm doing everything right. Or maybe they're just too nice to say what I'm doing wrong? Sigh. I feel like there must be something...
