I have a 9 month old boy who has always been a terrible sleeper. He would wake up every 3 hours for milk when he was 3-6 months. He wakes up now every 2 hours sometimes and hour and half and to make matters worse he just doesn't drink milk and goes back to sleep, he wants to be rocked and patted down everytime he wakes up! It takes about 30 minutes each time he gets up for milk to make him sleep again. There has been times where he just crys in his sleep for 2 hours and the patting and rocking doesn't work .. I'm so stressed out, night time for me is a nightmare... I work so hard during the day and yet I dread night time... I've tried doing everything with him ... Letting him cry it out , routines, baths, milk , massage, different night lights , cereal in his milk...sometimes he just gets up from his night sleep and stays awake for 2,3 hours before going back to sleep. I really wanted to try to get pregnant again when he turned one but I had to rethink that. Has anyone ever dealt with this before???
