Ahhhhhhhhh...we have some relief!! Last night was SO much better than any night since Lilee got sick over a month ago! THANK YOU to all who left a tip on how to get her to sleep better. I can't say it was just one thing that did it, nor am I naive enough to think it's totally "fixed", but it was SO nice to sleep for more than 40 minutes at a time. Last night, Lilee went to be about 8:30-swaddled. Woke up about 10...went in and un-swaddled her and laid her on her tummy(I feel bad for letting her cry it out swaddled and I'm afraid if she ever rolled over swaddled she'd be trapped). Patted her back and shhhhh-ed in her ear...she fell asleep. NORMALLY, 10 minutes after leaving she wakes up but last night she slept from 10-3am. YEAH!!! Then, I went in, got her and fed her a bit. She got antsy so I rocked her and she fell asleep. She woke COMPLETELY up when I went to lay her on her belly. I shhhh-ed her for a bit and then just left the room and SHE WENT TO SLEEP and SLEPT until 8:15 am!! YEAH FOR SMALL MIRACLES!! Seth went in to work a couple hours later than usual and partook of the extra sleep so we are BOTH finally feeling like we can rejoin the human race and actually think clearly now!! It was nice. Like I said, I'm not sure exactly what is changing things, but whatever we are doing we are going to keep it up and hope for the best!!
THANKS AGAIN for all the help!!
OH...AND HAPPY LEAP YEAR!!!
