Ever since we took our little trip to Oakland a few weeks ago, Caden’s sleep schedule has been all out of sorts. And Jacob, my lovely Jacob, is almost four months old and still waking up at least once (usually twice) in the middle of the night. A typical night for me looks like this:
7:15ish Jacob goes to bed (usually easily)
8:15ish Caden goes to bed but usually cries for an hour until he goes to sleep
10:30 I go to bed but feed Jacob before I go to sleep
2:00 Jacob wakes up – I’m tired so I feed him
3:00 Caden wakes up… why? I dont know… GO BACK TO SLEEP!!!
4:30ish Jacob wakes up – I’m tired so I feed him
5:30 Caden wakes up for the day!! I’m not kidding… it’s awful
So, I’m a wee bit tired. I’ve read the Baby Whisperer and Babywise (they basically say the same thing.) I’m trying really hard to do a three hour routine with Jacob but I’m stating to feel like a prisoner in my own home with someone always taking a nap. Anyway, does anyone have any brilliant ideas? Is it too early to let Jacob cry it out? How long do you let a 4 month old baby cry? I’m desperate! Help me before I go crazy!
