My ds turned 4 months on the 5th. I went back to work 2 days before that. He was sleeping decent, 8pm to 7am waking once or twice to eat and right back to sleep. Ever since I started back at work he's up multiple times a night (at least 4/6 a night). He's with family during the day and he drinks 2-3 4oz bottles of bm while I'm away. This has been going on for almost 3 weeks now and I'm a zombie. I have a preschooler too so it's not like I can nap after work, plus SO works some evenings so I'm alone with both kids. I don't think it's a growth spurt or teething (I've tried Tylenol a few nights and it didn't help). I also tried gripe water and it didn't help either.
Could this be reverse cycling or something missing? And how can I change it? I'm not a fan of cosleeping bc I can't get comfortable with him near me so I would t sleep much better. Help I can't function like this anymore.
