I am now going on 10 1/2 mo. with out more than 4 hours of sleep in a row and usually in a night. My LO wakes often 4-5 times a night and it is killing me!!!!! Yes, these are still on nights she is not teething, not gassy, not too tired or not tired enough, etc. And yes, we have bedtime routine of dinner, play, bath, story, nursing, sleep.
On good nights she goes to sleep at 8:30, wakes at 12AM and 4AM (for a feeding)....and she is ALWAYS up by 6:30.
I am still nursing, but only 3 times a day....cutting to 2 and I also give her anywhere from 8-12 oz. of formula a day. I fill her up with lots of veggies, cereal, and canned baby food around 7 each night then nurse and sometimes add 2 oz. of formula at her feeding before bed.
I can't just let her cry when she wakes....so that is out of the question. Most of the time she is easily soothed by me simply putting a paci back in and she goes right back to sleep....but I am up having to walk across the house into her room.
This can't be the norm!!!!! I have no idea why she wakes up from a sound sleep! How do we both get at least 5-6 hours of sleep???!!!!!
