i have never liked talking about our sleep routines because i was always afraid of jinxing our luck. olivia was always a GREAT sleeper. she would nap throughout the day (sometimes without having to be rocked) and at night she would eat, get bathed, get swaddled, and get put down for bed... no rocking. no singing. no swaying. she would just fall. asleep. olivia had also been sleeping 6 hours straight since she was about a month old. we have been spoiled. we got very used to the fact that our baby would fall asleep without a problem. she would sleep without a problem. so we would sleep GREAT!
things are changing now. olivia does not like to nap now. if she does nap she needs to be rocked constantly and the minute you try and put her down she wakes up and i need to start the rocking process all over again. at night... she wont fall asleep on her own. i have been having such a hard time with this. i get frustrated because she used to be so good at this. but no more! i have spent the last 4 nights rocking my baby girl to sleep at night. and guess what... she is waking up!!! last night she woke up 3 times throughout the night (ok she never did this!!) and she is crying and screaming and wont calm down until i pull her in bed with me.
i usually like change but i am having a hard time with this.
any other mommas have sleep problems?
ps. vote for us?? we have really fallen in the ranking :(
