CALLING ALL MOMMAS!
I learn something new about babies everyday – and I was already beyond confused to begin with!! Any advice on sleep training?? Let me know what has worked for you!
I’m not against crying it out so I think we will start with the Ferber method. I’m thinking the “fading” method may be a good alternative too.
I know Nugget can’t be hungry ALL the time!!! I have read that bigger babies should have easier times sleeping through the night, and he did at one point. Recently he’s gone from sleeping 12 hours to waking up every 3 or 4. I’m having a hell of a time trying to distinguish between hunger/habit/sleep regression/etc. Why is mommy-hood just a giant guessing game? Where is the freaking manual??
Nap time is a huge mess too, recently. IF I can get him to nap it lasts anywhere between 20 minutes to 1 hour. (Except now of course because he decided 3 am – 5:30 am this morning was a good time to be wide awake!)
Needless to say, I’ve had a headache all week and would desperately love some ZZZzzz’s! Luckily my husband has a pretty good work schedule this week and will be around to help starting this afternoon!! I may just pass off the baby and run away for a while (and by run away I mean drive down the street and sleep in my car!)
Help a momma out ladies!
