Exhausted mummy to 8 month old
A bit of a long one!
Just wanted to see if there was any advice anyone could give me.
I'm exhausted. LO is waking 2/3 times in the night,screaming where as he would only wake for a feed once during the night,this started about two weeks ago. He's also started waking up at 5-5.30 am.
We were co-sleeping but I needed my bed space back as I wasn't able to sleep properly with LO in bed and it was his dad that wanted to sleep next to LO as he works away all week.
Anyway he's working away for a fortnight a time now so I made the transition of putting LO in his cot with the side off and pushed up to the bed. This week I have put the side on and started to sleep train him properly using PU/PD method.
We live with MIL,FIL&BIL,FIL gets up at 4am every morning and I'm sure this is contributing to him waking up at 4am for a bottle although I have read about sleep regression and wonder weeks.
I'll admit I am really struggling with lack of sleep now,I'm getting snappy,I don't have the energy to even play with LO,and we've been stuck in the house since this started happening which is leaving me feeling even worse..
Anyone got any suggestions,advice or just encouragement lol..
Thank you x
