No sleep for me tonight!

I went to bed nice and early, at 8:30, because I'm planning on working a half day tomorrow to slowly ease myself back into it. We'll, little girl woke up at 10 to eat and here I am 4 hours later still awake. She's been eating, passing out, then waking up as soon as I try to settle into position for me to sleep. When she wakes up, she wants to nurse again and we start back at the beginning. I finally gave her a few ounces in a bottle, which she gulped happily, then continued to fuss for the breast. It's now almost 2am, so here's hoping I can get a little bit of sleep for the rest of the night.

None so far! I fed her two ounces from a bottle, then nursed her and same thing . I'm really losing my patience.

Huge hugs Joan! How exhausting! I hope you were finally able to get a few hours of sleep before you had to be up. Could she be going through a growth spurt or something like that?

I got a few more hours, so I'm ok. I think she randomly decided she wanted to sleep with the boob in her mouth. I made sure she got a good feed in and took her to the glider and rocked her with her paci. She stayed asleep that time.
