Recently, Noah started waking up every two to three hours at night for milk. Either that or he doesn’t know how to go back to sleep on his own when he wakes up, and needs to nurse to sleep. He will curl his legs up and thump them down hard on his mattress, and this loud thumping sound is repeated until I pick him up. Sometimes, it happens when I put him back in his cot after he falls asleep too.
I don’t know why he started sleeping so poorly, and what’s worse is that he naps very infrequently during the day too. Previously, he could sleep for at least five hours at a stretch at night and I really pray he will go back to that routine soon. It’s so tiring waking up so many times at night! I have no idea why Noah doesn’t seem affected by it at all. He’s still smiley and ready to play all the time, when all I want to do is to SLEEP.
I’m really tempted to let him cry it out but my MIL is staying with us now after arriving on Monday and there’s no way she will be able to take the crying, be it during the day or at night. Sigh.
Dear God, please let Noah sleep through the night again. Help him to take longer naps during the day too. I’m so, so tired! Please help. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
