I'm kind of over the newborn stage. I mean, yeah, they're all cuddly and snuggly and all that. But, the sleeping? It doesn't happen. And me? Not such a fan of the not sleeping.
Addison seems to sleep really well during the day...like 3 hour stretches or longer. And I have to wake her to feed her, which I think will help her sleep better during the night, but alas, it does not.
Last night she was up from 1:45am until about 4:45am....almost continuously. She slept for a little bit and I think I maybe got an hour of sleep in there? I'm not really sure...it's all sort of a blur at this point.
She grunts and screams out in her sleep all night long, pretty much. She seems to have really bad gas and I'm not sure how to fix it. During the day, I bicycle her legs all the time and am constantly burping her and at night, after I feed her, I burp her every time. She doesn't always burp though, which pretty much sucks since I'm assuming that gas builds up in there, hence the waking up screaming, etc.
So yeah, I don't know how to fix that problem. Does it just go away with age? Don't get me wrong, I'm not expecting her to sleep through the night at 2 weeks old (has it really been two weeks already?!), but man, dude, give me some sort of a break here! I already had one kid who didn't sleep through the night until she was 11 months old! I deserve some sleep, right? Right?!
