I hope we figured out our answer! I *hope*

I've been nursing E every one and half to two hours during the day. Sticking with a bed time routine of bath, PJ's, nurse, and rock. And doing it later instead of earlier (she usually starts to get fussy around 6:30, but we've been keep her up).

She has sleeping 4.5-6 hour stretches, waking 2 times to nurse.

3 days of good sleep and I feel human again. E is happier. Her diapers a wetter and her BM's are more frequent and typical. E is awake more during the day which is great bonding!

Next task is figuring out naps besides in mommy's arms! I go back to work in two weeks and can't hold her while she sleeps! I do have a moby as a last resort, but ya know!

Now would you routinely do a "dream feed' before you go to bed?

Her last good feeding is usually between 5-6pm. She usually goes to sleep between 7-8pm. If I try to offer again before bed, she gets mad that milk is there. DH and I don't usually go to bed until 10. last night we were still up at 10:30, so I just fed her since it had been 5 hours since her last nursing and I knew she'd be awake within the hour. Nursed her and she slept for another five and half hours.
