I need some advice on my little mystery package DS! I say mystery package as I never know what he's gonna do from one day to the next!!!
DS is a serial catnapper - thanks to reflux being undiagnosed for 4 1/2 months, we got into some nasty sleep habits. Long story short, have got into Tizzie's routine. We try to stick to it, but with teething and ear infections - it's tough!
The dreamfeed normally tides him over until about 4AM now (it was 2.30am, then 3AM etc). However, he's not yelling for food - so I leave him (Tizzie says not to go in until they start crying) - but he chats and sings and giggles and calls Dad Dad Dad (still no Mum - I think Bum is the closest so far)... we've been stuck like this for about a month now! I've tried settling techniques, I've tried feeding him, I've tried not feeding him - all to no avail.
Any ideas? He tends to nod back to sleep at about 6AM - I just get back to sleep and DD comes in ready to start the school day. Hubby works away 1 week out of every 2 - and this is a killer for that week he's away.
Suggestions please - I'll try anything.
PS I've added 2 blankets and a sleeping bag so am pretty sure he's not cold.
