I know you think it's cute to wake up every hour at night... but Mommy does not! Please start sleeping longer. Thanks :)
PS- don't worry, I still think you're cute. But you're MUCH cuter when you're sleeping ;)
Keep in mind the following things, though:
- Elliot has a sensitive tummy. His doctor said he recommends parents of "normal" babies put a teaspoon of cereal into their nighttime bottles to help them sleep longer. Obviously this would be a bit tricky for Elliot- and a big risk. So I still haven't tried it.
- He's scared of the dark & silence- We sleep with a small lamp and his soothe & glow seahorse on. I've thought about possibly trying to get him to sleep in the dark, but then I'd have to turn on the lights everytime he wakes up, and I feel like that would wake him up too much. Right now, he wakes up cranky but still half asleep, drinks his bottle, and falls asleep immediately, sometimes before he finishes his bottle.
