I'm trying to figure out why I have been "blessed" w/ babies who don't understand that sleep is necessary. Asher was a HORRIBLE sleeper as a baby! Thankfully when he was about 1 year old he got better, but it was a long, hard road to get there.
Chancery has taken to waking up every 45 minutes (much the same as Asher did, come to think of it). I don't know if there's some kind of break in her sleep cycles at that time, but I could set a watch to it being 45 minutes after I put her down that she will wake back up again. Usually this is just after the first time I put her down, but the other night it happened about 5 times before she slept for a longer period.
I know when Asher was about this age we tried going in every 5 minutes, but we did that for a week, spending the entire night going in before we decided he could just cry it out. I am a little more hesitant to try that w/ Chancery b/c she takes a plug & if she looses it, that could be disatrous, but something's gotta give.
I know this seems to be a recurring post, but it's something that takes up about 90% of my energy these days. Not to mention that htings are complicated a bit when you are trying to soothe a sleepy baby back to sleep & your 2 year old starts yelling for you at the top of his lungs!
