Finding time to blog has been nearly impossible lately.
Because we're still having some sleep issues.
Baby goes down for naps.
And I can kind of get him down at night without going to bed myself.
NAPS ARE ONLY HALF AN HOUR.
I feel like I've tried everything to keep him asleep for longer but nothing is really working. The best I've managed is after a half hour nap in the afternoon, he starts crying and I go up there nurse him for a bit and he goes back down...for another half an hour.
I can do this 2-3 times so that he's taking a 2 hour nap...but I'm still tending to him every half hour.
It's hard to get anything done when you only have a half hour window.
And bedtime? Same thing. He will go down at 7-7:30pm...for half an hour! So, once again I'm up there every half hour nursing him back to sleep until I'm ready for bed about 9pm.
Nothing keeps him down by himself for more than half hour.
Once I go to bed with him HE'S DOWN FOR 3 HOURS.
WHAT THE HELL, KID?
I'm sure this is all because we co-sleep and he sleeps better when mama is next to him. And I'm still not ready to give up on the co-sleeping because for the most part it means I get more sleep at night, but I would love to be able to have this kid napping for longer and going to bed before me and without me.
Anyone else dealing with something similar? Any suggestions? How long do your babies nap???
