My little man is 3 weeks old. I am very fortunate in that he has settled into a 3-4 hourly feeding routine. However, the last few nights he has started becoming so restless while sleeping that my DH and I are running on three days with almost NO SLEEP!!!
He'll struggle in his wrap, grunt, kick, snort and just generally carry on for hours. When I look in his bassinet, he's actually asleep. I figure if he were in distress he would wake and cry???
The home nurse tried to tell me he was unsettled as I was overfeeding him! I dont agree since he's exclusively breastfed 3-4 hourly.
Did anyone else have this problem? During the day he's as quiet as a mouse of course. It's only from about 10pm onwards.
Is it too early to shift him to his own room? I'm starting to think this may be the only solution to actually get some rest myself if he keeps this up. I feel guilty since he's so small...but mummy needs some sleep ....zzzzzzzzzz!!!!!
