No sleep for mommy...

My 7 month old last night nursed all night along, she must have a least 15 times, it felt like every time I feel asleep she was screaming. Most of the time she didn't even want to nurse just sleep with it in her mouth. If I would get up to use the bathroom she was screaming the whole time, I'm shocked it didn't wake her sister up. Why was she like this she was fine all day.

  • Sucking is soothing...maybe a pacifier would help. My sister has one for breastfed babies and it helps cut down on gas.

  • "No sleep" is part of the Mommy Contract, y'know.... She did it 'cause she's normal. It will pass.

  • She's most likely going through a grotth spurt. Give her a few more days and if it does not let up take her to see the Dr. Better safe then sorry. As a mother of 3 i understand, nap when she does and take it easy on the house work so you can keep up as much energy a you can
