Will has never really been a good sleeper. Even in the early days, he was much more of an eater. Wake him to eat? Never had to do it. He was always ready and raring to go. I believe that I have had one stretch of four hours of sleep since he was born. Three was a stretch that I would consider good.
The past three nights, Will has had one two hour stretch and then been up every hour to hour and a half for the rest of the night.
I am exhausted.
The first night, I thought it was an aberration. I am still hoping for growth spurt. At each waking, I am trying not to rush right to shoving a boob in his mouth. However, shushing, walking, bouncing doesn't seem to soothe him. And trying to put him back down without a feed isn't working at all. He is also giving all of his usual hunger cues.
I tried giving him a formula "topper" last night, to no avail. This seems to be his newest sleeping schedule.
So, I am tired.
Very, very tired.
