False hope of seeing the end of the tunnel

The first night after I stopped blogging about my daughter’s sleep issue, I even gave up walking her to sleep when feeding didn’t work. That night, I turned off all the night and snugged into the cot with my baby. She climbed all over me, punched my eye and slapped my face. To my surprise, she slept next to me by herself after being all over the cot for an hour. She did 3hrs for her first stretch for the very first time in months. I was thrilled! I repeated it again the next night and every night. A couple of times I fell asleep in cot because she did, nice way to catch up on some sleep. It can be hard when she is slapping my face and head butting my jaw. My daughter’s sleep improved every night. She got to 4hrs for first stretch and even 6hrs for one night. On a side note, falling asleeping by herself doesn’t mean she will sleep through or know how to go back to sleep. I have got the misconception that if she can fall asleep by herself then helllllloooo sleep. Or maybe because I am still a sleeping aid being next to her in cot? Anyway, I thought my daughter is finally better but I was wrong! Last night she was back to hourly despite I get her to sleep the same way as before. She even woke up at 6:18am to start her day. Tonight, she has been every two hours so far. Sigh. I wonder if it is to do with teething. Her upper central is still not fully out, still got the round edge to come through. Could this be it? I will need to wait to see how she goes tomorrow night. Come on baby, please be good again.

Oh, I had fed her infants friend after she woke up. It says to help with teething pain but she woke up 2hrs after. It is not helping yet.

    • Hey hey. Coincidently I am actually trying something similar to what you’ve posted in your blog. My daughter still sleeps in the same room as us so we can’t really leave the room lol. At the start I went into cot to comfort her, she would cried and cried but eventually fell asleep next to me knowing I’m not going to feed her. I worked with one stretch at a time and for the last 4 days, she has been soooo much better! Same as you, she actually slept through but not to 7am yet. I’m still working my way there to push her 5/6am feed toward 7am.

      • That’s awesome!!! I love that you made a plan a stuck to it, good job mommy! Yea I think the whole point of what we both did was to get those little ones to not want food in the middle of the night, cause they don’t need it they are just use to it.
        Well thanks for sharing hope we can help fellow Mamas out there😊
