Im feeling really down at the mo, its been building up for the last few weeks, I just feel like crying. All because of my LOs sleeping problems. LO slept through the night (8/9pm - 7.30am) from about 7/8 weeks. He them got a cold at 3.5m and hes nights (understandably) were very disturbed due to not being able to breathe etc. I guess we then hit the 4m sleep regression cos even when the cold went he was still waking many times during the night. But this went on for a further 3.5m, with him waking fequently, on a bad night it could be every 45 mins after 10.30pm through to say 4.00pm, on a good night I was still going to him 4 or 5 times. Most times puting his dummy in and stroking his head settled him but I ended up with very disturbed sleep and was bloody exhausted all the time. At 7m he was waking less - 2 or 3 times and on the odd occasion went right through the night. This was so much more copeable and I felt not so exhausted. However come 8m and he gets another cold. The night wakings with this cold were horrendous, one night I was up with him from 1.20am - 5.30am with him just screaming. The cold is now gone but his gone back to the silly night wakings but this time they seem so much worse. Puting his dummy in doesnt settle him anymore, i have to stroke his back etc for ages, cuddle him in my arms, and on occasions bring him into bed with me. Hes also struggling to settle himself when he first goes up, last night I spent 2 hours going up and down the stairs to him before he slept and then only cos I spent 15mins stroking his back. Anyway, well done if youre still reading, sorry it turned out so long. Im just sitting here, on edge, waiting for his first scream that he hasnt settled. I dread going to bed, knowing that my nights gonna be disturbed. I get up in the mornings feeling so exhausted and drained I dread the day ahead. OH tries to do his share but LO is a mummys boy and only wants me. Just not sure how much longer I can cope with the disturbed nights, I need my sleep!!!! Well even 5 or 6 hours uninterupted would be fantastic!! Anyone else going through the same or have any words of wisdom??
