    Default Sleeping issues resolved?

    Kaylee is sleeping better, not great, but better. We drained 6 oz of formula down her throat and I was able to get her to sleep from 7 till almost midnight (almost back to where we were). And after that she woke up @ 3 (with Brad) and then again @ 6. I feeling like a million bucks. I still only got just over 2 hrs sleep between each feed but I feel great. And we gave her another bottle @ 12 so DH got up with her did the routine bottle/burp/bum and I never had to get out of bed. Awesome. We'll see if it successful again (fingers crossed). On a side note, because Kaylee was feeding every hour for two weeks my supply got ramped up. So, with Kaylee missing two feeds I became so engorged. Hadn't been like that since my milk came in. By the 3 am feeding I was wanting to wake them up myself just so I could relieve my breast!

    I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.

    I second that yay! I never thought I'd be happy about only getting three straight hours but I feel like a million bucks because of it.

    So life sucks again. They were switching hitting last night. One up one hour, the other the next. We've even caved and started giving Kaylee a bottle here and there to get her calories up, but she's still waking up. And I have no idea what's going on with Brad. Do babies have growth spurts at this age?

    Yes, I believe that babies have growth spurts at this age. Sometimes, they are working on a milestone also. Is Kaylee rolling yet? Maybe she is focused on that?

    Yup, I think the growthspurts are usually somewhere around the same time as their check-ups, so 2mo, 4mo, 6mo, 9mo, etc. In other words, constantly, if they are not sleeping well because of shots, then its teething, or growth spurts, or working on a new milestone, and with two, yeah, pretty much constant. Sorry!

    I hope you can get some more sleep soon!
