SORRY SO LONG
I will start off this post by saying....Yes, my baby is spoiled. He sleeps with me, and has slept with me since he was newborn. My baby was premature and large heart murmur, he also had jaundice (breastfeeding), and he was hospitalized at 3 weeks old for meningitis. I have thus kept my baby very close to me to monitor his breathing. Well now the murmur has gotten better and he doesnt turn blue, Doctors say that it is nearly closed completely on its own.
So, I have been putting my baby to sleep and placing him in his crib....He stays there for about 3-4hours and then he wakes up to nurse (and I keep him in the bed....I knw I shouldnt but I fall asleep breastfeeding him). Throughout the course of the night he wakes up at least 3 times to nurse. He is exclusively breastfed (no formula or supplimenting). He also does solids 3 times a day (breakfast cereal, a veggie, and a fruit....also he does gerber snacks and a sippy cup with water).
Since he has been born--there has not been one night that I have been able to sleep a solid 6-8hours without him waking up.
Is this normal???? What can I do to get him to sleep through the night??? Has anyone else experienced this???
