Who needs sleep?

I took this picture in Kyton’s room with all the the light out while he was sleeping.  I had not taken my picture of the day, and Kyton decided to go to sleep for the night when I thought he was only napping.  I just noticed that if you look close, you can see that during the photo he moved his thumb.

Here are the specs: F 1.8      50mm      2 sec      ISO 200

When Ky was a week old he began sleeping through the night the majority of nights.  By 3 months old he slept 10 hours a night every single night.  When I went back to work at 4 months old he woke up slightly earlier Honestly I didn’t mind this much.  He would wake up at 6 am and we’d cuddle until I needed to get up at 7am. 

We were away from home for two weeks over Christmas, and assumed that his sleep was off since we were traveling.  Now that we are back he is still waking up at 2, 4 and 6 am to eat.  I asked the doctor about this and told him about what a great sleeper Kyton was. He said that it is normal, and will likely get worse! Dylan gets up with him, changes him and tries to get him back to sleep.  Usually the only thing that will get him back to sleep is nursing.

Has anyone else experienced this?  Suggestions?

Yep. This sounds like Ethan! My husband also attempts to help in the middle of the night, but it only makes Ethan more angry! He will only settle with nursing. Last night was an every two hour night...We seem to have one okay night, followed by a really rough one, with an okay night to follow. It is tough and I wonder if Ethan will ever sleep through the night! He has only done it maybe 5 times?? You are not alone! If you make any discoveries about how to get Kyton to sleep well again, you'll have to let me know! :)

sounds like he is geting ready for a growth spurt (around 4 mo) and is trying to build up your milk supply..but who knows? could be anything!
