    Default Newborns are NOT cool!

    DD, why do you not sleep for more than 30 minutes in the day time (for the third day running) then you self settle for the first time ever and will most likely sleep for a couple of hours now if I didn't have to wake you in 20 minutes to go collect your brother from school.

    Urgh, they seem to know when it is time to go somewhere and decide to sleep and sleep.
    I was planning on going to the markets on the weekend, which finish at 10:30am. DS went for his sleep at 8:30am, I thought, I'll go as soon as he wakes up, slept until 11.

    It's gone from bad to worse!
    Usually she would have a feed at 7:30 and then not wake til 10 or sometimes even 12 for her next feed.
    Since Saturday she has been all over the place, today being the worst day of it.
    Sleeping for 20 minutes whe she finally got off.
    She has been awake now since well, more or less since school pick up.
    I'd say since she got up at 5:30 she has had about 1.5 hours sleep, and that's being generous.
    I have no idea what is going on.
    If she's near me (and I've hand her all day up until DH came in until 6:30) shes like a little addict looking for her fix.
    She's been nursing all day, I gave her as much as she wanted but she's getting frustrated and smacking her lips off me. To be honest I'm pretty chewed up here and what used to be a great routine is now, her still screaming at 10pm.
    I can't do this.
    I have two other kids to look after. Sleepless nights on top of the hard days are not an option. Getting some sleep at night was the only thing keeping me going

    What is this she's going through?
    DH out her in bed beside me there. He had settled her but as soon as she was beside me she woke, wanted to feed but then is as fussy when she latches on, red faced and contorting all over the place.

    Has anyone else experienced this?
    I'm considering FF again after these few days.
    This is just not going to work out if this is related to her boosting my supply or something.
    Nope!

    How old is she?

    Sounds like a growth spurt. They suck but usually only last a few days and then back to normal.

    She was seven weeks yesterday.
    DH took her in to the spare room away from me from 11-2am when I went in to get her. She slept ok beside me from then on and is still sleeping which never happens in the morning time. She's exhausted.
    i really hope today is easier.

    Phony this sounds exactly like my girl. She is 10weeks now and calmed down. I took her to an Osteopath and it worked wonders we did 5 weekly visits and then now we are monthly. She is a different baby. I also cut out caffeine and dairy from my diet to see if that changes things. I also take a pro biotic and give her one too.

    She slept til 8:20 this morning.
    I didn't know myself.
    To be able to move freely and get the boys and myself ready for the school run totally stress free - amazing!

    I fed and settled her when we got back and I snook out of the room at 9:50.
    So far so good.
    I won't get ahead of myself though.

    I'm wondering if she's unsettled due to the brewers yeast I'm taking?
    I only took two capsules yesterday though.

    Hi FuddyMum
    That's great news.
    What did they do to your DD?
    How are you going yourself?

    Hey Phony the first 6 weeks were awfully hard she was really unsettled. I tried everything! I think a combo of her getting older the Osteo and a routine has worked the last 2 weeks. She is sleeping from 7 pm waking once for a feed and back down til 6-6:30 which is fine by me! Getting that block of sleep does wonders! I have really fallen in love with her sunny personality she is all smiles. How are you going? I am coming out of my new born haze and starting to feel on top of things.
