Frustrated

Okay, so I take back what I said in the last post. Caden is not sleeping throught the night... well he was, but he's not anymore. He has decided that waking up every 4 hours is a good idea. But this makes his parents not very happy. I have tried everything... well that I can think of. Anyone have any suggestions?? I did start him on rice cereal a few weeks back and about 2 weeks into it is when he stopped sleeping well. So I stopped the rice cereal thinking maybe that was causing problems. Nope, not it. I thought he might be teething, but he's fine during the day. Happy and playful. Nope, not it. Maybe it's because we don't turn the humidifier on any more. Turn it on. Nope not it. We're feeling pretty frustrated. We have to let him cry it out for about 15-20 min every time he wakes up until about 4 or 5am when I go in to feed him. Keep us in pray, lack of sleep is not fun.

Hi Gretchen. Good to hear how your family is doing. I'm sorry that the baby is waking up all of the time. That is so frustrating. I don't know why they do that. Oliver started that too and it was almost 2 weeks of waking up every 3 hrs. And his crying would wake up caroline so it was pure misery. I don't know how you can let kids cry it out when you have 2. So frustrating. Anyway, all of that to say that one day he just stopped and then started sleeping through the night again. Wierd, I know. I pray your little one will do the same.

I wish I had some words of wisdom. It sounds like you have already done what I would suggest, let him cry and go in and pat him and keep doing it. He will get the hang of it soon! We are soooooo excited to see ya'll this weekend! So any chance your ready to move to NWA?
