Do trios ever learn to sleep? It seems my kiddos have a bad day, like yesterday, where they pretty much never sleep followed by pretty good days where even when not sleeping they are calm. At night I think the girls would sleep longer, but Zach wakes up about 3-3.5 hour mark even though we feed @every four hours. And we wake the girls up then too. Everyone said to wake so all can stay on the same schedule, and I agree with that...except that I think the girls would sleep longer if allowed. We never really know though, because of Zach. It seems off to me because Zach is our biggest eater. He's eating almost 5 ounces (140ml)...but still the one waking up demanding to be fed.
I feel like I'm doing something wrong since he eats so much but seems to sleep so little. Let me clarify, he pretty much only sleeps the 3-3.5 hours at night, on a good night. During the day he tries to stay awake as much as possible. Up till now it hasn't been so bad because I've had help/family here. This coming weekend, my true help leaves and my MIL arrives for two weeks. I personally feel like she is coming for a "visit" which is way different than helping. I'm worried I won't be able to make it on my own with this crazy schedule.
I'm sure this sounds confusing and I'm sorry. I'm tired, worried, and probably a little ppd thrown in for good measure. ugh. any help with getting my boy to truly sleep a little longer would be helpful. words of encouragement if that is just not gonna happen would be appreciated as well. :confused:
