so this is less a question and more a call for some emotional bolstering. my little girl is almost 5 months and growing so fast! right now she's having some congestion issues, along with the other age appropriate attention issues that tend to disrupt sleep, and it is really tearing me down. she's EBF, and while that will not change it does make getting a good nights rest these days pretty much impossible. this past week she's awakened at least 6 times from 10pm-5am and will nurse for 20+ minutes, more for soothing than anything. we used to co-sleep up until she was about 3 months but then, for my sanity, we transitioned her to her own bed (she was kicking me non stop all night and very restless. putting her in her own bed was a no tears affair, thank goodness, and we both slept better until now). if i knew i could actually sleep i would bring her back to bed in a heart beat, but we've tried and it's actually worse for me than getting up and nursing her back to sleep. i know daytime naps would help, but i'm one of those weird people the, unless i am literally about to pass out, i can not sleep once the sun is up. it sucks and right now my husband is no help what so ever, which is the truly frustrating part.
any tips or tricks would be helpful but mostly i just need some emotional support that i'm not really getting from home right now.
