This past week all of a sudden McKinley has been such a restless sleeper!!
She goes down fine and then around 3AM she starts to thrash and grunt and whimper and she is still asleep while doing this but then she keeps doing it to the point where she wakes herself up! And she will continue doing this throughout the night until she finally wakes up in the morning. It's driving me crazy because it's obviously keeping me up when she does this. She has never had a problem before, she was always such a great sleeper from the start. But now Idk.. I've googled this and a lot of people seem to have this problem around the 3 Month of age mark but there seems to be no solution or answers to this. Someone said their baby it lasted 6 weeks! Eye Yi Yi! Even cradling her in my arms to sleep it still doesn't help.
I'm at a loss of what to do. Anyone in the same boat or had any older children do this when they were babies and know what's going on?
Spencer did that around 3mos. Lucky for us it only lasted about 2-2 1/2 wks. It was rough, but he did go right back to his schedule pretty much over night. Hopefully your LOs get back to themselves soon.
The best thing about having sons, is knowing you are the first woman he will ever love - Me
This has been happening to us too! For about 2 weeks he's been waking up at 1:30 instead of his usual 3-4:00 time and he's just thrashing around in his crib. Last night he was back to sleeping almost 8 hours it was after his baptism day so it could've been because he was just that tired, but I'm hoping he's back on schedule now!
I am going through the same phase with Tristan. He wakes up around 3 or 4 and wont settle down till morning. He is half sleeping, half awake, tossing around. I have him in bed with me, flipping him on his belly usually tends to help and he falls asleep eventually. I wonder if it is teeth related, he has his hands in his mouth a lot lately.
And to answer the above nursing questions. Yes, my nipples are quite sore these days because he is too curious and looks around a lot while nursing. He even made a milk blister on my nipple last week.
jill will have nights like that as well. it def makes for a long day at work the next day i have noticed when she eats a bigger bottle right before bed she usually sleeps better through the night. thats the only thing that has helped us.
My son started doing that at about a month old because I quit swaddling him. I ended up swaddling him again and started putting him to bed earlier and it seemed to help alot. Also feeding him till he refused the bottle. Sometimes took quite a bit of formula but it made him sleep amazing. I don't swaddle him anymore, but I still have a habit of getting him ready for bed at 7:15 every night and feeding him as much as he will take and he has been an amazing sleeper. Anywhere from 12 - 14 hours a night.
