Why, oh why won't you sleep!?
« on: January 22, 2016, 12:24:26 pm »
Last night my 5mo woke up EVERY HOUR!
I don't think I got ANY sleep because I was so stressed about her sleep. My husband couldn't sleep because of her and my toddler next door was waking up because of her crying.
What to do??

Until now, we were fairly consistent at feeding twice a night which I was about to phase out.
She habitually will wake up at 5:30am for a feed and then sleep in until 7/8ish.

Also, her naps are short 45min stints too these days.

Should I begin sleep training her regardless of her crazy short naps and short sleep cycles?

I would expect the short naps are due to UT, what A time are you working on currently?

Waking every hour at night is usually discomfort especially if she is generally an IS. Is she teething? Check for that. Failing that, have you recently introduced solids? If you can, I would kee that to the beginning part of the day to make sure any discomfort from any new foods introduced is apparent earlier rather than at night time x
