My little guy is 3.5 months old (closer to 4 months, turns on the 13th). Anyhow for the last few weeks we've been experiencing worse sleep at night. A couple weeks ago we switched him from the pack n' play in our room to his crib down the hall. I felt like I was waking at every little movement and maybe my husband and I were waking him up when we moved. He was kinda doing ok, but he would always be hard to lie down into the crib after he nursed to sleep. Even if i sat for a bit after he fell asleep on me, as soon as I stood up, he would twich, like he knew I was going put him down. If he stayed asleep, it could be for 10 minutes, 5, minutes, 45, or if I was lucky, almost 3. I thought things were starting to get better (we went from a week of 6 hr sessions to waking every 45 to 60 minutes).
The night before last, he he slept for 2 hrs, then 44, minutes, almost 2, then 4 hrs. I gave up at 2 and brought him to bed with me, but he was up kicking and fussing at 6 when my husband was up for work. Usually we are up by 7. Last night was the worse. He was probably over tired because my 2 year old kept waking him up when I tried to put him down for his third nap (he was tired). So he was really tired by 6, and crying. I nursed him for over a half hour (a long time for him) and when i laid him down, he woke up 5 minutes later. i nursed him again for awhile, he stayed down for 10 (at this point I'm crying with him). I did it again, and he slept for an hour. After that...
