That’s about as far as we got.
Friday night, I decided we had to do something to get baby girl to sleep better. There was some crying (there is anyway), but it didn’t take as long as I thought it would to get her to sleep. Every time she woke up at night (which was a lot), I gave her a pacifier instead of my boob (which I had mixed feelings about). I could be wrong (sleep deprivation will do that to you), but she seemed to wake up less and less as the night went on.
Saturday night, I may have cheated a little, but she went to sleep easily. And slept. And slept. She slept from 7 pm to 6 am with a dream feed at 9:30 and another feed at 4:45. I may have slipped her the paci at 3:30. But it was such a huge improvement.
And then last night happened. I don’t know if it was gas or her reflux suddenly kicked it up a notch, but she was miserable and screaming. I slept (sort of) sitting up while holding her at an angle. It was pretty awful.
And tonight isn’t looking any better so far. I hope I’m wrong about that.
