How can such a cutie be such a tyrant at night?
Last night he was up, hungry, six times. You'd think, this being my seventh child and all, that I'd know all kinds of tricks to get babies to sleep through the night by three months. However, a strange thing's happened.
With my first and second babies, I read every parenting book I could get your hands on. I knew when the developmental milestones were so I could mentally check them off. I knew what foods to start when and in what order and how to schedule the 'right' way. I knew exactly what all the experts were recommending and took it all to heart. By the time baby #3 came along, though, I was feeling pretty confident that I could handle a baby without re-reading all the books and magazines (hardly used the internet in 2002!). Then, by the time baby #4 came along, I was hearing that much of what the experts said had changed completely! So, my faith in them was dampened anyway. Add to that my terrible memory (Mom, at what age do you know the color that babies' eyes will stay? Hmmm....Let's look it up!), and you have a Mom of many who hardly knows everything.
This time I also feel so distracted; like it's really hard to think too much about any one thing because there's so much vying for my attention.
So, please help me out. Any ideas 'bout how to get a three-month-old to sleep through the night?!
