For the last week I've been sleeping like a newborn- up every 2 hours, that is. I think it's because of the pearly gems emerging in N's mouth that she's been up so much at night. (she's getting teeth two at a time now, poor girl). Monday night was the absolute worst though- so bad we went to 'sleep' in the guest bedroom so as not to wake K.
I woke up because she was up- but not only was she up-she was busy hugging daddy- hugging Ferdinand (the cat- who suffered only so much of that- then took off), and generally just sitting up babbling and being a nuisance. I know that I can't blame this on teeth- but maybe new skills and tooth pain, and the heat have been conspiring???- all I know is that every time she wakes up - she sits up in bed and looks around to see what's going on.
Last night she slept fitfully- thank goodness- so hopefully this has passed, if not I guess I need to try something new. The thing that kills me about it is that even though she's already got six teeth- there's still so many more to come! I don't want to stop co-sleeping or nursing at night- and it's usually not that disruptive for me, I firmly believe it's allowed me to sleep more than if she were in her crib- but if this keeps up I'm going to have to change something. What is to be made of these baffling sleep changes? does anyone have any advice about this?
