I found this on BabyCenter, not quite sure who wrote it but absolutely love it and can relate to it! Now this is sleep regression!! The cheeky little babies!
Here’s my situation. My mommy has had me for almost 4 months. The first few months were great – I cried, she picked me up and fed me, anytime, day or night. Then something happened.
Over the last few weeks, she has been trying to STTN (sleep through the night). At first, I thought it was just a phase, but it is only getting worse. I’ve talked to other babies, and it seems like it’s pretty common after mommies have had us for around 4 months.
Here’s the thing: these mommies don’t really need to sleep. It’s just a habit. Many of them have had some 30 years to sleep – they just don’t need it anymore. So I am implementing a plan. I call it the Crybaby Shuffle.
So we’re back from our holiday and must say, it was great except for the horrible weather, wet wet wet all through the week! Quite annoying really! But all the same, managed to see a few old friends and did a bit of shopping too so that was fun! Anije was generally great all through the week and fell in love with her uncle all over again (who I might add was so kind to allow us our first official date night, something I would definitely love to do on a regular basis but oh well…)
OMG!!! Last night had to be one of the worst nights Anjie and I have had since she stopped being a newborn baby! I’m pretty certain she woke up at least 6 times! Twice to eat and the rest just dummy runs! That was soo not good…
I had heard a lot of December mummies talk about the 4 month sleep regression and thought I was already going through it but boy was I wrong! Now I know the difference! it doesn’t help that Anjie will be exactly 4 months tomorrow either!!
