Lilah has stopped her evening scream fest, which I am THANKFUL for. However, she's still up twice a night, and up EARLY. Last night she was up at 1am, then 4:30am, and didn't go back to sleep until 5:45am, and then woke up for the day at 6:30am. I am SO freaking tired. I wish she'd just cut out one of those feeds.
My LO is exactly the same. Also up for two feeds a night. Generally up around 12 and then 4 30 again and then he is up for the day at 6. I am also desperate for him to drop one of those feeds but trying to be patient with him. Hoping the 3 month mark brings some changes!
The most frustrating thing is my mother in law has come to stay for a week to help with the baby. She slept all afternoon yesterday and when my husband asked her if she wanted to take the baby this morning so I could sleep in a bit she said no thanks she thought she would get some more sleep and slept until 8 30! Shame those uninterrupted nights sleep must be so hard for her!
So I don't know if this is purely coincidental, but for the past week we've been giving Claire 2 oz of chamomile tea in her last bottle of the night (I brewed a big batch all at once last weekend, and just kept it in the fridge). Since we started, she's been sleeping from 9:30 to 6 every night, I kid you not. We feed her at 6, and she'll go back down till 8:30.
Again, could be the placebo effect, but I'll go with it!
