Last night was a rough night. Normally my wee babe wakes up 1-2 times a night. Lately it’s been 4 and I’m not used to this. It’s pissing me off to be honest with you.
My hubby and I have been trying something new for the last week. We’ve been bathing her, reading her a story, breastfeeding her and then bed time. Bath, book, boob, bed. And every night she’s gone to sleep at the breast but that’s it until around 12 or 1 where she wakes up and feeds and goes back to sleep for an undetermined amount of time.
Tonight, completely different. Bath, book, boob, bed, crying, boob, bed, sleeping, boob, bed, crying…this all started at 7pm and now it’s 10:10pm and she’s crying. My husband says “leave her and let her cry”.
What is it that make men and women so different where they can tune out their desperate pleas, but for the mamas, it’s like nails on a chalkboard. No wait, that’s more of an irritating sound and this is a more sad, and well, desperate sound.
I’ll let you know how it goes…
It’s 6:55am and… She went to bed finally around 10:40pm and slept until 6:00am!! This just validates it even more for me that there is no rhyme or reason for night time sleeping/waking.
Why do some nights they sleep all the way through, and other nights wake up 4+ times?????
I wish I knew.
