    Default Nights are not getting better

    Here's how tonight is going:

    She started her nurse-a-thon early, so I foolishly thought I'd get to go to bed early. That was silly of me. She nursed from 6-8 and then was just incredibly angry after that and wouldn't latch. I think she was exhausted because I was able to walk her around the house and get her to sleep had to walk her to sleep after that. She slept until about 10, then woke up in the same mood. I got her to nurse for about 15-20 minutes then she refused and just screamed. DH walked her back to sleep and I was finally able to take her to bed at 11pm. By 3:30, she's woken up 3 times wanting to nurse. Holy crap I am so tired. She does fine going two hours between feeds during the day, so what's with these nights? I hate to wish away her infancy, but I could live without a few months of these colicky evenings and total lack of night sleep.

    Joan - Hugs! Nights are the worst at our house too, although thankfully he's not screaming, he just wakes up wanting my nipple in his mouth about 5 minutes after I finally get him to sleep every time. I suppose there would be screaming if I didn't give it to him. I totally know what you mean, I want to enjoy him when he's this tiny, but it's hard when you're just completely exhausted. I keep thinking that if he would just sleep (not even STTN, just for like 3 hour chunks without me having to hold/nurse him the whole time) then everything else would be so much easier. They will outgrow this though. They will! That's the thought I cling to, lol

    I wish I could give you a magic answer to help. I have BTDT and it's sooo hard. I hope you're getting to sleep in this morning.

    I hope your able to get some rest today. And she figures this out soon. I was also going to ask if it's possible she has some gas and is just uncomfy?
    Kylie has been sleeping great and then last night hit. She woke up around 8pm from a nap and it took until 1 this morning to get her to sleep on her own in her crib. She would sleep for maybe 5-10 min on her own during this time. Otherwise she was awake and just content to look around. She finally fell asleep at 1 and then was up at 4:40 for about an hour but then she slept until almost 8:30 this morning. So while, this really isn't all that bad, it was the worst night so far for us.

    I think its more of her being overtired by the time night comes. She does have some gas trouble, but that usually hits around 4 or 5 am, after lying flat most of the night.

    Not really. I try, but she doesn'taalways sleep well and if we have to go somewhere, she usually won't sleep at all. She's been napping well today, so we'll see if that makes a difference.
