He has never been a good sleeper and has an occasional good night where he will go a 5-6, sometimes even a 7-8 hour stretch of sleep. We moved him to his crib in his room at night (he had already been napping there) about 2-3 weeks ago because he started rolling onto his tummy and will only sleep that way now (his bassinet isn't big enough to allow him to roll and it makes him mad). Ever since then, he wakes up so much at night. He goes to bed around 7-7:30, and will sleep about 3 hours, then another 2 hours, then get up every 1 hour. The only want to get him back to sleep is to nurse him, although I don't think he is really that hungry. Usually around 4 am I so am exhausted that I bring him to bed and let him sleep with me so he can nurse when he wants while I sleep. How can I get him to wake up less? If he gets up a couple times a night, that is fine, but this is getting ridiculous! He has started solids and that doesn't help. We have a routine and use white noise. I am EBF. Is CIO going to be my only opion?
