I returned to work when my daugther was 3 months old. She was sleeping pretty good up until that point, waking only 2 times during the night to feed and doing a lot of cluster feeding during the day. I would say she was getting 8-10 feeds in during this time. Her longest stretch during the night was 5-6 hours, she was wake to feed, sleep for another 2-3 and wake to feed, sleep for another 2-3 hours and then be up for the day.
Well, once I returned she has been waking 4-6 ( usually more like 6 times)times during the night and the only thing that will get her to go back to sleep is the breast. She also started to learn to roll over during this time, which wakes her. Sometimes she'll sleep for only 30 or 45 minutes before waking again and has a real hard time going back to sleep. Seems to be WIDE awake. It's KILLING me right now and I'm not sure what to do!!! It's as if she is a newborn. We are heading into almost a month of this behavior I knew heading back to work she would increase her feeds when I'm home, but waking 6 times to feed at night seems like a lot to me. On the days that I don't work she does the same thing......Thoughts?
