Why can't she do this for longer than an hour and a half at a time? For the last 8 days, Hazel has been up at night every 1 1/2 to 2 hours and needs nursing and rocking to get back to sleep. And during the day, 2 naps around 30 minutes each.
She is perfectly content with this, but I am slowly withering away. I feel like the mother of a newborn right now, you know, that foggy, unaware state you walk around in, your eyes feeling like someone is shooting a blowdryer right in them, and your bones actually feeling 102 years old. Come to think of it, she slept more than this when she was a newborn.
I just don't know what to do. I mean, I guess I do know what to do, but I don't want to do it. I have been holding off because I was thinking this was just a phase, a developmental thing or something and she would go back to only waking 1 or 2 times a night, but now I am not so sure...I think I may have to do a little sleep training this week and I am DREADING it. Not only do I hate to even think about letting her cry it out, even for just a few minutes at a time, but I don't want it to keep Adler awake either as their bedrooms are right beside each other. Not fun at all.
But things need to change, and quick. Momma needs her sleep!
