Request for sleep advice
Dear Sleep Store
I have been a customer of yours since my first son was born in July 2007, and you have many wonderful products. Something that I really really really wish you sold though, was sleep. Actual sleep, restful sleep. I'm starting to forget what it's like!
My second son Isaac was born in August 2009, and he's a terrible sleeper. Where I'm stuck is during the night. He goes to bed fine. I feed him about 30 mins before bed, and put him in his cot awake.
He'll wake about 2-3 hours later, and then I'm up every 2-3 hours during the night. Last night he was up 5 or 6 times, sometimes hourly.
He's a big boy, 11kg at 6 months and he's really really hungry. I pick him up during the night and he truly seems hungry, he nuzzles into my shoulder and squawks until I give in and feed him. Once I thought maybe it was teething (he has 4), but pamol didn't make a difference.
If I put him down without feeding him, he screams. Really really screams, which breaks my heart and wakes his brother up, which just creates more problems.
I don't know what to do. I am so tired, what I wouldn't give for a good night's sleep.
