Im at a loss right now. My son just turned 8 months and isnt sleeping through the night. He used to sleep 8-10 hours a night and all of a sudden just stopped. I am exhausted. I havent had a good nights sleep in probably 2 months. I dont know what to do anymore. I havent changed his sleeping patters or his habits. He gets a bath every other night, a bottle right before bed, and goes to sleep.
But he is waking up every 2-3 hours if not more. Last night he was up every hour starting at 10:30pm. At first I thought it was his teeth but Im just to the point where I dont think that's it all. Ive given him Motrin and Tylenol. Ive tried feeding him in the middle of the night, NOTHING works. Ive tried the cry it out method and that doesnt even work because he just screams until he makes himself sick.
I never had this issue with my first son. He slept through the night with no issues and still sleeps through the night. He's 3 now so he better sleep through the night.
Is there ANYTHING at all that I can do to help him start sleeping through the night? He is getting so exausted and is getting sick a lot. He is just running his body down. He's a horrible napper, but on the weekends when I have him at home instead of daycare I can at least get him to take a morning and afternoon nap. But Im just at my wits end. I have never in my life felt so frustrated and so helpless let alone so exhausted.
Any and all advice is much appreciated moms!
Thanks in advance!
Take it from another mother that sometimes babies cry for reasons you do not expect. When my kid Ryan was first born he cried all the time. I always tried to feed him to make him stop. (I know it sounds bad) but I lost so much sleep because I always tried comforting him.
I tried researching as much as I could to find out how to make him stop and I stumbled upon a DVD named Dunstan Baby Language. It's a DVD that teaches you how to understand the cries of your baby so you could know what's wrong. It's fascinating and I think you really need to check it out if you're having that much trouble.
Here's more information about it:
I think they're running some sort of free trial right now. I suggest you check it out.
