For the past few weeks, we’ve been dealing with Abbie getting up in the middle of the night again – exactly 3 hours after she goes down for the night. EVERY night.
Let me rewind. Right before she turned 6 months old, Abbie started sleeping through the night. It was glorious – I felt like a human again! After about 2 weeks of that, she started waking up. We were dealing with a pretty bad diaper rash and I had the beginnings of my sinus and ear infections (which I thought was a cold), so I figured it was just a phase. Then I started to notice the pattern – 3 hours after bedtime, every night.
Last night was one of the worst – she was up for almost 4 hours. Needless to say, today’s going to be a rough day for me and Chris.
So here’s where I need your help, moms – any ideas? We’ve tried rocking her, giving a bottle, changing her diaper, letting her cry…and last night Chris flipped her on her stomach, which is what finally got her to sleep…which I know we shouldn’t be doing and it makes me nervous, since she’s still not a good roller. I’m starting to lose my mind from lack of sleep.
Anyone else gone through this? Let me know if you have ideas – I’ll try almost anything at this point to get some sleep!
