So my adorable Sophie has never been a good sleeper. Finally at 3 months she started sleeping 2.5 hours at night and then another 1.5-2hrs then every hour till the morning (This was GOOD). Starting about 2 weeks ago it has gotten even worse (just when I thought it wasnt possible) and she is up every hour (and during the day only 10 minute naps). We have been putting her to sleep in her crib for a while but she of course can sleep for hours on our chests and decent amount of time in her car seat when we rock her if she stirs. HELP we are really sleep deprived and have tried the basics: night = darkness, turn off lights when time to sleep, eat lot during day, big feed before sleep, etc. If she is teething I even gave her tylenol one night but didnt make any difference in her restless sleep. She also has reflux so that also kicks in as well (but we sleep her on an incline to adjust for this). I am not really up for letting her cry it out or ferberize but getting a little desperate here. Also I am breastfeeding at night (pumping during day) and she won't take a bottle from my husband anymore Advice? Thoughts?
