I'm having another bad day. my baby is seven months and can only be described as a bad sleeper. In general he is a happy go lucky baby but he often wakes after one sleep cycle and is clearly in need of more sleep. I had to sleep train him at 4.5 months and since then his sleeps have been better. But I am so traumatised by his bad sleeps. I find myself obsessing over his sleep cycles and planning my housework around his sleeps, trying to be quiet around the 40min mark when it's likely that he'll transition from one sleep cycle to the next. It really gets me down that he's such a crap sleeper. Nights are better but quite often wakes too early.
I'm sure there are other mums out there whose babies aren't good sleepers. I'd like to hear from you about what you do, whether its normal to be this anxious all the time? Or obsessively thinking about their sleep?? Knowing that there are others out there in the same boat would be nice... As in, I'm sorry that you are having a rough time as well but it's nice to know I'm not alone.
