Almost every morning at 5am, I wake to the sweet sounds of my baby boy. This wouldn’t be a problem if I hadn’t just put him to bed an hour and a half earlier. Somehow he went from sleeping in a five hour stretch to waking every 2 hours. Three, if you give him a bottle–and that’s if he decides to drink it.
I’ve taken all of the suggestions: a warm bath before bed-doesn’t work; cereal in his bottle-been doing it for the past 2 months-doesn’t work anymore; putting a shirt that smells like you in the crib-did it with both mine and his dad’s shirts-doesn’t work; and even this random Trini lady’s “put Nestum in his bottle to fill his belly”-doesn’t freaking work. It’s not a matter of getting him to go to sleep, it’s staying asleep.
I’m beginning to think I will never get a full night’s rest again.
