Your bubs sounds so much like my little one. I really hope the meds kick in for you soon as once you get on top of the reflux I think you'll find sleep improves. Going dairy/soy free also really helped her as well so it may be worth a try.
If it is Dr S you are seeing too he is brilliant!!
Thanks for thinking of me @wobbleyhorse. It's up and down. She's been sick with her first cold this week which hasn't helped. It seemed like we turned a corner later in the week though as she was much happier (smiling again) and less screaming and at least able to manage some 30 minute naps. We had an amazing day with her Friday she slept in the car for 3 hours (road trip) and then went to sleep at 6:30 that night and didn't cry pretty much at all that day. Wow we were like who is this baby it was like living a different life that day. Then yesterday was a nightmare with lots of screaming wouldn't (couldn't?) sleep so was awake all afternoon til 8:30pm and each time she woke to feed wouldn't go back to sleep which she never usually has issues with overnight. So maybe a step forward a step back.
Not sure what the next step is from here to be honest. I've been sick with a cold all week too plus had a commitment to go away this weekend so I'm pretty drained overall.
Glad there's a bit of positive change! Friday sounds like it was a great day and,I know for me, having just one great day can see you through the next few not so good ones!
Hopefully the good days will start to outnumber the bad ones for you & bubs.
Best wishes :-)
ETA: hope you feel better soon. It's so draining being sick and stressed and sleep deprived and feeding a baby. Look after yourself!
Gingermillie how are things going for you now?
I'm in the same boat with my 4wo DS. I'm struggling so much with getting him to sleep during the day. He is pretty good at night and usually falls back to sleep after a feed.
Day times are a whole other story especially if we are home. Yesterday he was lucky to sleep a total of 1.5 hours broken up in little 20min naps. I struggle to read his tired signs but am getting better, but it doesn't seem to matter, he still won't go to sleep he is just not as worked up if I catch him in time.
Sorry for the ramble. I'm losing it just a tad.
Have you seen a sleep consultant yet? Any progress made?
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
