Or maybe NEVER with the sleep is a better title. Back when Lydia was a tiny, reflux-y, non-sleeping infant I comforted myself with the knowledge that it would pass. Eventually she would get bigger and she would outgrow the reflux, and she would sleep. Well. We’ve hit 2 of the 3. At her 18 month appointment her measurements charted in the 90-95th percentile! A far cry from her teensy 5% weight at 1 month (or whenever that was.) And she outgrew the reflux long ago. But sleep? Is still bad.
Some nights she sleeps through. Sometimes even a couple nights in a row. After a couple nights I find myself hoping that finally, FINALLY we’ve hit the sweet spot and she will sleep through the night regularly. So far, that has yet to happen. She’ll have streaks of good sleep, sometimes even a week or 2 of sleeping through every night, but then it gets bad again. I suppose “bad” is relative. Some nights it’s only a quick wake up. Other nights it’s multiple wake-ups or being awake for hours. Sometimes there is a LOT of crying. It’s exhausting.
I don’t know where I was going with this. Apparently I’m just here to complain? (I mean, it’s my blog I’ll do what I want.) Anyway. Maybe if she started sleeping I could manage to post here more than once every six months. Wouldn’t that be nice!
