Kyton has a super rough time sleeping last night. I tried to put him down last night around 10:00 PM. Normally I lay him down, swaddle, turn on the music, give him the pacifier, and leave the room. Sometimes we have to go back in the room once or twice to replace the pacifier, but many times that is it. Last night he screamed when I laid him down. Not fussing or crying, screaming! I picked him up, we walked, tried his Mamaroo, (swing type thing) and anything else I could think of. After an hour and a half of trying everything he finally nursed, then fell asleep in my arms. At 12:30 when I thought he was really out I tried to put him to bed, and go head there myself he woke up. I ended up feeding a crying baby at 12:30AM, 2:00AM, 4:00AM and 6:00AM. He’s been a great sleeper from day one, at a week old he was sleeping through the night. I think he’s woken at night about 10 times in his life, and that was only once. I know that there are plenty of mommies and daddies that deal with this on a nightly basis, and I realize how lucky we are. We did not even feed on this schedule in the hospital with a newborn. He would sleep longer, and didn’t wake him. Today he slept great for Dylan, and went down easily. Let’s hope it was a one night thing.
Tonight when I tried to put Kyton in his bed he was not a happy boy, so I let daddy hold him. This is how he fell asleep!
Any ideas? 6 month growth spurt, ear infection, afraid of the dark?
