Please help, 5 mth old won't sleep!
I really don't know what to do, since Thurs my 5 mth old won't sleep during the day for more than 20 min, she previously had 2 naps totaling 3-4 hrs a day! She is also cutting her nighttime sleep short by about 1-2 hrs. She seems to need more sleep than this since she cries all afternoon and evening. She is teething but Tylenol hasn't changed anything for her. She doesn't seem sick, no fever, congestion or anything but we are all miserable. This morning she wouldn't go to sleep at all! We had been on a pretty average nap schedule of roughly 9 am and 1 pm. All my Mom can say is that she isn't getting enough food! That is so frustrating to me. I have offered more frequently and she often refuses. We haven't started solids yet so she only gets breastmilk. She is growing great at 18.5 lbs at 5 mths! Please help, I am about to lose my mind!
