I'm at the end of my sanity. My 7 month old daughter wakes up every 2-3 hours at night. Sometimes every 1-2 hours. We've tried extra feedings, baby cereal b4 bed, setting up a routine, partial night-weaning, going to bed earlier, tiring the baby out,...EVERYTHING!
I was comitted to co-sleeping and not using the CIO method. But I can't take it any longer. I'm waking up resentful and angry with her. But people are now saying that her body is used to receiving nutrients (little as it may be, each time she wakes up) at certain intrevals during the night, and so her body is trained to wake up at those times for it. I can't let this go on till she's 2 or 3, as I hear many other mother's doing. (I'll feel like a complete failure for this, but I'm learning my limits.)
B4 we let her CIO (Because I really don't feel good about doing it), have u ever used another method that's turned an all-night waker into an all-night sleeper?
