so dd wakes often in the night. like nearly every hour. its taking a toll on me. chasing a 2 yr old all day and only getting a few minutes of sleep has got me sooooo cranky that all i feel like i do is snap off. i also have a headache that will not go away (from the lack of sleep i assume) on top of her waking to nurse that often she is my early riser. so while i am up till midnight trying to get ds to go to sleep she wants to be up for the day at 7 am.
what can i do to fix this? i would be happy if i could get her to sleep for a 3 hour stretch.
i have tried giving her baby foods/cereals before bed to fill her up, i have tried increasing and decreasing her daytime sleep. i tried fenugreek to boost supply but it didn't seem to make a difference on how she slept. she just wants to nurse for 5- 10 minutes and then is back to sleep... wakes about an hour later nurses for 5-10 min then is asleep again.
help! all suggestions welcome
