My DD is 7 months old. She slept like a typical newborn till about 12 weeks old and everything just seemed to fall into place. She'd sleep between 6-8 hours for her first sleep. Then she hit 4.5 months old and it all fell apart. I'm pretty sure she started teething then to. For the past 10 weeks she wakes up every 2 hours for a feed throughout the night. She'll feed for 20-30 minutes then be awake again in 2 hours time. That's 2 hours from the beginning of the feed to, so in essence every 1.5 hours.
She's BF and gaining plenty of weight. She gobbles down her veggies or fruit I mash for her no problems. We bed share also as its the only way I'm getting any sleep.
I feel like a walking zombie most days. Early on she was in the love me wraps and now a summer sleeping bag with pj's underneath in accordance with the temperature for that night. This change didn't increase or decrease her sleep.
I've tried cluster feeding from about 5pm till her bedtime at 7pm. She has a bath, play, feed bedtime routine. She'll feed to sleep no worries, even pulls off the boob awake and will then just fall asleep beside me no worries.
I've tried patting and shooshing when she wakes up after 2 hours but she just ends up screaming. I'm not interested in doing CC. Is there anything I can try to get more than 2 hours sleep out of her?
I'm back at work 3 days a week (DD comes to work with me) and in the middle of the night I never fall back to sleep straight away. I swear I'm lucky to be getting 3-4 hours sleep some nights.
I even tried baby osteo last week. That night DD did a 6 hour first sleep then 2 hourly after that. Every night since has been 2 hourly.
I hope I don't sound too pitiful I'm just really after any tips. Thanks
ETA - I should add that she naps 3 or 4 times for 20-30 minute naps per day.
If we are out and about during the day she'll happily go 2-4 hours between feeds!
