After this she wakes about every hour to two hours and I nurse her back to sleep, this could take two minutes or thirty minutes. I do feel pretty sleep deprived, I just keep hanging in there hoping she will begin to sleep for longer periods of time.
Can anyone speak to this and maybe give me some reassurance that she will start sleeping longer at some point! I just wish I could understand better why she wakes up every hour and can not stay asleep longer. I also wonder if it is hard for her to stay asleep next to me? I would think it would be the opposite. Our first daughter slept with me until she was 4 and it worked out wonderful, I just want our lo to have the same wonderful experience, but I can tell that she is tired during the day because she has not slept well.
She naps the same way, I usually will go in and rock /nurse her back to sleep after an hour when she wakes up and then she will sleep another 30 to 40 mins. She is only getting about three to fours hours of sleep during the day.
Thank you for any advice!
