At her 4 mo shots appt, the Dr said she should be able to sleep most of the night. She said to stop getting up to feed her whenever she cries. So basically bed time is between 11 and 1130. Then she ALWAYS wakes up between 2 and 3. I ignore her. Sometimes she falls asleep but sometimes she screams at the top of her lungs. She wakes up the whole house, I live with my parents. They both came in today and said I need to feed her or do something. Even though the Dr told me not to, just to leave her so she figures out how to go back to sleep, I got up and tried to feed her. She latched on for less than 2 mins then wanted to play. She clearly wasn't hungry. So I told her it's not play time, she needs to sleep, and put her back in her crib. So she is now crying again. I don't know what else to do. 5 months and I'm still not getting any sleep. I am barely functional and it seems like it's getting worse.
I wasn't a fan of this crying it out, but after reading multiple Dr-written articles and talking to my Dr, I feel better about it.
