I don't know what the f is going on with Lexi. This is now the 5th night a row she's been up 3 times at night to feed. It's like we're back to the newborn stage. She was down for the night at 9 pm. Then fed at 1 am, 3 am, and 5 am. After the 5 am feeding she was grunting, loud as hell, moaning all sorts of weird. She wouldn't take her paci and I was afraid she'd wake up my older son. Who, by the way, woke up at 3 am crying randomly. He has been waking up every night now between 1 and 3 am consistently for the last two weeks. He says he has to pee, but barely goes. He also demands his clothes and sheets to be changed, even though they are not wet. Sometimes they are, but not last night. He's kind of out of it and hysterical so we just do what it takes to get him quickly back to bed. He goes back to sleep alright, but I don't know why he's waking up now consistently. Frustrating.
Lexi has been drooling like crazy, crying loudly and oddly more often, constantly chewing on fingers, and had diarrhea yesterday. Could she be teething?
This is my night every night - but change the 3am feed to 4am instead. We've never left the newborn stage. She wakes up at 5am like clockwork, grunting and moaning and whining, won't take her soother, won't go back to sleep, and we're up by 5:30am after being up twice in the night before that.
My older girls wake as well - last night my 5 yr old was up to pee, and my 2 1/2 yr old was up whining about a bad dream. Lilah is by FAR my worst sleeper. I thought my first daughter was bad, but now I see she was great. She was down to 1 feeding a night by now, and sleeping until 8:30am. My second daughter was a great sleeper right off the bat. Lilah......not so much. VERY frustrating.
Remy has been drooling like crazy too and fingers in the mouth. I refuse to believe its teething. I refuse to believe he will have any developmental milestone. I want him to stay an infant forever, especially knowing he will be my last Im use to being up all night, My schedule is something like this between 8 to 10 pm is bedtime (depending on how good he slept during the day) if 8 pm he wakes up at about 12 then 2 then 4 (he thinks its party time) 5, 6, and by 7 I throw in the towel and just get up with him. Sleep????? What's that??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you girls still swaddling? It's the only way Claire gives us good sleeps. I have to use the batwing swaddle (google it...I think there's a YouTube vid showing how it's done) because she busts out of a regular swaddle. Claire wakes just once usually and is right back to sleep after. Every once in a while she'll sleep 10 to 5...heaven!
Every 3 hours? That sounds like a great night sleep around here! Haha. Kody went to bed at 9:30pm, was up at 11pm, 1am, 3am, 5am, 6am, 7am and then up at 8am for the day. Still, I consider it not too bad of a night overall.
