I am just so exhuasted. He is 4.5 months now. He is just over 15 lbs and was born 2 weeks early at 6 lbs 6 oz
My boy was doing so well...he would go with a 5 to 7 hour stretch at night and then maybe a 4 hr stretch between feeds.
For the last 5 or 6 days it has been horrific. He was fussy during the day and at night...well, he is up every 2 or 3 hours. I used to be able to put a pacifier in his mouth to calm him..no more. I feed him as that is the only way to seemingly settle him. I am so tired now that I just take him into bed with me to feed and he will fall asleep at my breast for a bit.
He is not "really" eating more during the day so I don't know if it is a spurt or not. It has been too long for a spurt has it not? He is also "sad" during the day much of the time - fussy or irritable. Not talking as much etc
I have read all about the 4 month sleep regression thing. Is this it?
How do I know he is just not ready for some solids with my milk? (ps - 95 percent breastmilk - will take bottles)
I had a Dr check him out...no ear infection and no major signs of teething.
Please tell me what this is and how I can help him? And help me? I am getting depressed
