We’ve had a pretty horrendous couple of nights during which S just won’t sleep. He’s out for like an hour and then is up again. Usually he goes for 3 hours at a stretch with the occasional 2, 4, and even one 5 hour stretch. Please let this stage pass quickly. Part of the problem seems to be that he doesn’t like to be swaddled but if he isn’t, his arms flail around and he wakes crying. We’ve been using the Halo sleep sacks with built in swaddle, but he is starting to outgrow them. Tonight I’m trying a regular blanket swaddle.
We have an Arm’s Reach co-sleeper that we’ve been using in bassinet mode (ie not attached to bed, but near bed). I’m thinking about setting it up to co-sleep as he seems much calmer in bed with me when he falls asleep after nursing. Any of you co-sleeping?
Mama is so so SO tired. Today I just started bawling and freaked poor DW right out. How are all of you dealing with the sleep deprivation? When does it get better? I love my little guy but this not sleeping thing is the friggin pits.
