My daughter was very colicky and outgrew it around 3-4 months. She's 10 1/2 months old now. I feel like when she came out of that initial horrible colic, there were a lot of "broken pieces" that had to be dealt with, and sleep was on the top of that list, since I had basically been doing anything necessary to get her (and the rest of our family, except me) to fall asleep & stay asleep. We sleep-trained her at about 5 months old. It was brutal. The first night she cried over an hour, and woke up once. The next night, much improved. Now she is sleeping through the night. Still working on early morning wake ups (a problem that is driving me crazy-if anyone has any suggestions, do tell!) and naptime...she goes to sleep fine at naptime, but doesn't stay asleep (also driving me crazy). The whole experience has really made me doubt my abilities to know/understand this child. I know eventually, she'll be able to at least TALK to me about what she's feeling, but right now, I'm desperate for some level of "intuitive" connection with her (like I have always felt for my older daughter).
Kate? How is your baby/ toddler sleeping now? Wish I would have read this in Jun 2013 as I had a 5 month old that I also started "sleep training" ( hate that term sorry ). She cried for 2 hours straight the first night. I was so over the crying It didn't bug me. The sleep you described sounded like my baby almost exactly. She is such a good sleeper now. Goes to bed ( in her crib and placed in there awake) at about 8pm every night and wakes at fish every morning. Usually no waking at night unless something is wrong. Her naps are usually once a day for an hour or so, not gonna complain about the naps since the night is so great!
My niece was also having sleep disorder problem and she approached to suboxone treatment Virginia center where she received beneficial treatment that made her overcome this disorder. Really grateful to their amazing services.
