Ok I am really running out of patience. DD wakes so often during the night I only just drift back off to sleep and she wakes up again wondering where I am. Bad separation anxiety it seems. Co sleeping doesn't help that much and is so uncomfortable. Not sure how much longer I can continue to do this. She's been a terrible sleeper for most of her 7 months and I feel it'll never end!!!
I had 5 blissful nights of DS sleeping through then bam up ever 30-60 mins from 10.30pm onwards!
Sometimes I get so desperate in my sleep deprived haze that I literally pray for my son to sleep through, and I can't say My prayer was answered the way I wished it might be, but I did find you guys and maybe for now that's all I need
A refreshing change from the smug,self satisfied people with their perfect sleepers, judgement & unsolicited advice that this exhausted mumma is usually subjected to. I would try anything, with the exclusion of not attending to my babe at night or leaving him to cry, and none of it has done ship!
Oh yes I know the feeling. Friends with one baby that was great from the start all telling me what to do with my DS. I'm like you do realise I have 4 children 3 of which slept through from 6-8 weeks! It's only my last baby that has been the terrible sleeper also the only one that's had silent reflux. It's like being a first time mum all over again having a reflux baby is sooooooo different!
@BondGirl I think you and I have the same daughter? Or at least, maybe it's a Leo girl born in 2014 thing?!
CoSleeping was crap last night, DD scratched the s**thouse out of me because she couldn't sleep properly.
I was in tears at 8:30 because she was asleep but refusing to be put down... and because she woke at 5:30am it's 15 hours of her constantly with me! It's all too much!
