Now I know I keep banging on about how great BG slept when she was younger but trust me I need something to hold onto! I need to believe that she will again sleep through the night or I might go mad!
The first 9 weeks BG was home was hard, she woke through the night for constant feeds and me and OH would take turns to do the night shift, sometimes one of us sleeping down stairs with her so the other could get some sleep.
Then at 9 weeks she dropped 3 nights feeds in a space of a week and started sleeping 7 till 7!! We couldn't believe our luck, we were secretly quite smug, we had friends trying different sleep routines and we had done nothing and yet or baby slept 12 hours straight!
Don't get me wrong she didn't always have a good night sometimes she would settled till 8 or 9pm and other times she woke early but all in all she was a dream that is until about 10 weeks ago.
Our perfect night had come to an end!! At first we though it was her teething and low and behold 3 teeth popped out !! yay sleeping though the night will commence again, WRONG!
She is still not sleeping right at all and we are suffering. BG either settles really well at night but them wakes super early, its been 3.30am for the past two days, 4.30am before that. We just can't settle her and get her back into her cot, that girl wants to play! Or she doesn't really settle at all and is up most of the night!
Now I am fortunate that OH helps through the night, actually to be honest he does a lot of the nightshift then will wake me early so he can get a few hours before work. The problem is that even when he gets up to her I still don't sleep well and I can hear her and miss him in the bed!
I read somewhere that between 6 and 10 months Babies go through a sleepless phase due to all the new things they are learning and it passes. Well BG will be 10 months on Sunday we are praying that this ends soon.
My house looks like a bombs hit, we've almost given up on food and coffee is my bestest friend in the whole wide world!
At this rate we won't need a costume for Halloween me and OH can go as Zombies!
Now over at the fab blog Sleep is for the weak is a sleep deprivation carnival and she wants some pictures, thankfully there are none of me but a few of OH...sshhh don't tell him
