Worst night ever!! (Long)
I went to bed at 11:00 last night, Sophia woke up at 11:45 so I nursed her and she went back to sleep. She then woke up again at 1AM. I nursed her, but she didn't go back to sleep until 8AM!!! She wasn't even fussy the whole time so I know its not colic. She didn't even get fussy until the very end when she was clearly exhausted. How is it even normal for a 1 month old to stay awake for 7 hours straight? I know she doesn't have her days and nights mixed up, but even if she did, 7 hours is still a long time for her to be up even it was daytime. I did everything last night to try to get her to sleep! I even gave her gripe water again thinking maybe her tummy was upset. That actually made her mad so I stopped doing that.
Do you think I should call the pediatrician? My intuition is telling me this is just not normal, but I feel stupid calling them because my baby won't sleep. DH got up at 5:30 and walked around with her. He said that he could feel a gurgling in her stomach and she's been spitting up a lot lately. She even vomited on Sunday. Could it be acid reflux? Like I said though she wasn't fussy the whole time she was awake so it didn't seem like she was uncomfortable. She just quietly sat in my arms and stared at me or looked around. I even just put her in her bassinet so I could sleep and she could look around all she wanted, but that made her mad!
Ugh! I am so frustrated, upset, and exhausted. I have been crying all morning and this has just put me in a terrible mood. No sleep for almost 3 weeks now is taking a toll on me. I just don't know what else to do!! :( I was so happy about the great night we had using the gripe water and now it just seems like it was a total fluke! I am so scared at what tonight has in store for me.
