Here's the deal. I'm able to get DD down to sleep after her late evening feeding (normally around 10ish). She sleeps for about 3 - 3.5 hours (once she did 5hrs, but that was just once). Then when she wakes up I change her, nurse her, and can't seem to get her to go back to sleep. I keep the lights low, I don't talk to her. In the beginning it seemed liks she wasn't going back to sleep because she was gassy... she'd scrunch up her legs and make grunty sounds etc. Last night she was just awake and wanted to be held. Anyhoo... the typical night starts off well, but then ends with her in bed with me and combo nursing, snuggling, fussing. Last night, her eyes were wide open in the middle of the night.
Today I'm going to be keeping track of how much awake time she has... maybe she's sleeping too much during the day. When I asked the doc she said I should wake her every 3 hrs to eat during the day, but that I don't need to specifically wake her up for playtime.
I'm open to any suggestions on how to get her back to sleep.
