  • I take naps whenever I can!!!! DD is 3, since being potty trained she now wakes up to use the bathroom(good thing!) and I am 7 months pregnant so I am up with potty breaks also. Just when I thought I'd be getting good nights sleep, most night anyway, I got pregnant!! lol Good luck and like I said NAPS!!! lol

  • I am so sorry for you, yes I know what it is like. My first did not sleep through the night until he was 2.5 , his sister who was born when he was 2 slept through the night before he did. Then the 3rd was born 14 months later and she didn't sleep through the night until she was 14 months old. Try and rest when you can.

  • i was like that when my son was 0-3 months old. it got better after that but he still didn't sleep through the night and woke frequently until 17 months and he is 2 now and still wakes me up once or twice most nights.

    i would definitely mention it to your midwife or OB but be prepared to stand up for yourself if all s/he has to say is to let your child cry it out. hopefully s/he will be able to tell you if what you are feeling is normal.
