DS2 is almost 4 months old and we're having a terrible time with his sleeping at the moment. He needs to be fed or rocked and patted to sleep and only catnaps during the day, waking up tired. Overnight he was having long stretches of sleep but now wakes every 2hours or so. He generally sleeps in a bassinet with me in bed next to him but I've been doing some cosleeping to get some rest. Complicating things is the fact that he's had a cold for a few days.
I know there's a sleep regression at this age and he *should* get past it but DS1 has been a terrible sleeper since that age and is still cosleeping and sometimes night waking at 3yoa as we never figured out how to help him sleep better. Hubby and I are pretty stressed and quite divided on how to tackle it as we had such a stressful time with DS1. DH wants to do a CIO-type thing (which I am against) but when trying 'no-cry' methods with DS1 we just seemed to get nowhere!
I just don't know how to handle this. How do you even have the time to 'sleep train' a baby when you have another child to take care of?
Any tips/support/kind words?
