So m slept insanely well up to 3 months, right when I went back to work, 8 hours straight before that point. For the past few months though, she's had sleep regression and it's been getting worse. Worse to the point of being much worse than the first 2 weeks after she was born. The night before last she was up 6 times! She didn't even do that the first 2 weeks she was born. She would get up every 3 hours, and she slept for 6 hours straight after 3 weeks of being born. It's really awful now when you have to get up for work the next day. Not sure what to do. She goes right back to sleep within a few minutes, but when you can't even get 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep I've become like a zombie most days. Sometimes I'll give her the paci and she'll go right back to sleep. Sometimes she just wants her blanket and she'll rub the silky part on her face to fall back asleep. Sometimes she'll be hungary and get up and I'll nurse her, or give her a bottle. But lately she'll get up, and not want to eat, but just want me to pick her up, I'll attempt to nurse her and she'll just fall asleep as soon as she's in my arms... Not sure what to do?! I need some sleep though, it's getting pretty awful... She doesn't even need me to fall asleep before she goes to bed or for her naps most days, I just give her her blanket or paci and she's out. But this waking up in the middle of the night stuff is making me more than exhausted... and trying to function to work a full time job and take care of the house is getting pretty rough.
My first daughter really went downhill around 6 months. It did get a little better, but I remember 6-9 months being particularly rough. Wish I had more suggestions other than "been there" but I'm still struggling with her some nights. (((Hugs)))
