Mason is just over 5 months old now and he is still waking up at least 3 times through the night. After 5 months without a good nights sleep i am physically drained!
I have tried so many different things like, keeping him up later at night, or putting him to bed earlier, pumping and giving him a bottle to make sure he is getting enough right before bed. I wanted to wait until Mason was 6 months before feeding him cereals but i've even tried that out of desperation!! I've also tried giving him baths before bed and keeping him up longer during the day, not letting him take as many naps. The other night after the 6th time he woke up i made Bryce go get him and put him in bed with us cuz i couldn't handle it anymore. Now its a regular thing, after the 3rd or 4th time he wakes up i just put him in bed with us and you know how uncomfortable that is!! But even if he is in bed with us he still wakes up wanting to nurse, well not really nurse just be latched on then he goes back to sleep!! Sometimes his binky will be enough but most of the time he wants more! He has had a little cold the last couple of week that may be adding to how many times he wakes up through the night but i'm not sure.
Am I supposed to let him cry himself back to sleep even though he is a little sick and sounds like he is starving? I know i can't do that, it would be way to sad! Please help I'll take all the advice i can get!
