    Sad Oh the sleepless nights...

    Advertisements
    please tell me they eventually end?? Lol. Ashton is 2 months and he still gets up every 2 1/2 to 3 hours to eat at night, our first stretch is usually longer- about 4 hours...but then we go back to 2 1/2 to 3... they do eventually get better right??? Lol. I just need some reassurance here, I am so tired. I just went back to work and am also up with baby at night since DFs gone :/ this is my first time around I am sooo not used to this!!! Sorry for being such a cry baby LOL..

    It gets better eventually. Matt was about 3 months when he started sleeping in longer stretches. That was when he started sleeping until 4 am, waking up to eat and then sleeping until 7 or 8. Now he sleeps through the night, 8 pm to 7 am.

    I wish I could make you feel better but I'm extremely sleep deprived myself from my 5 week old. She only does about 2 hrs max at night. I can't imagine having to go to work in the morning and SO being gone, kudos to you!!

    I'm sorry ladies! It gets so much better, I promise! They start sleeping longer, then they start giggling, gibber jabbering, crawling... It gets way better.

    It will get better. Just be strict on setting a bedtime routine and it'll get that much easier. I think they usu start around 6 months or so, but you should ask your dr.

    It does! Its like a switch went off in Carter a week or so ago and he started doing 7 hours at night, eating, then sleeping for another couple hours. Before that he was on the exact same schedule as you. Im sure your little one will turn around too.
