My 4 1/2 month old daughter is having THE hardest time sleeping. Last night she slept 7 hrs only. Maybe 7 1/2 at max. And it was not uninterrupted sleep. I put her in her crib at 9:55 pm, hoping see would stay asleep for at least 6 hrs. She was up at 1:50 am. So, husband got up and bought her to me and I feed her for about 1/2 hr. Put her back in her crib at 2:30 am, hoping she would sleep until 6 am. She was up again a little before 5:30 am. So, husband bought her to me and I feed her again. I was so tired that I didn’t realize she was still latched on until almost 7 am! *Deep sigh* So, dad attempted to take her to her crib, but she was having none of it. She cried for a while and was up, so dad took her downstairs for two more hours while I tried to get some rest. At 9 am I went downstairs, she had just fallen asleep, and stayed asleep for about 25 mins. So, I had a quick bite to eat, nursed her, changed her diaper, gave her a morning snack of rice ceral, nursed again. All in hopes that she would nap by 11 am. And so she did fall asleep nursing at 10:50, only to wake up at 10:54. I left her in hopes that she would fall asleep again, but its now 11:30 and no such luck.
I really feel like she isn’t getting enough rest. She is constantly rubbing her eyes, but she just won’t stay asleep. Does anyone have any advice out there?
