Yep, Marin is STILL not sleeping.
I have a headache that’s headed towards a migraine. I took so Excedrin, so soon I’ll be all shaky and hopefully headache free.
I think I need to night wean this kid.
I remember doing this with the twins. Or at least, I remember that we did it, but I don’t remember any of the details. I think I just decided I’m not going to nurse them anymore at night, so instead I would send David in to comfort them. After awhile, they quit waking so much; they realized they was no milk coming so they might as well sleep. At least, in my best-case-scenario mind this is how it went. As I said, I don’t actually remember.
But I think we need to try it with Marin. She is up every 45 minutes or so, sometimes more, sometimes less, and all she want is the boob. In fact, she’s spent most of her life using a combo of nursing and pacifier to go to sleep, but in the last few days she’s started to refuse the pacifier, even when she’s no longer nursing for food but just for suckling. This sparkling new habit may just drive me over the edge.
As I’m writing this, I’m realizing that these sleep issues are so complex and many layered and that I no longer want to talk about it. All I know is that she is getting worse instead of better. She’s slowly chipping away at my opinion of her as an “easy” baby. Also, she used to sleep all night.
Send your good sleep vibes this way, ok?
