Or experts of infant sleep.
I know I promised a more detailed account of the whole delivery and hospital stay, but right now I am in desperate need of some sleeping tips. Aspen is staying awake a good portion of the night and sleeping soundly through most of the day. Sounds like she just has her days and nights mixed up, right? Well, I am not so sure. She nurses about every 2.5 - 3 hours during the day and then at night she becomes a ravenous eater, nursing about every 1.5 hours in the wee early morning hours. Also, when she is awake at night, she is fussy. Fussy until she passes gas or has a nice poo explosion. So then I thought it must be gas keeping her awake so I have been giving her Mylicon drops before each feeding. That helps maybe a little, but not enough for her go back to sleep. I can't tell if my diet is causing her to be gassy or if she's just getting too much sleep during the day or if she is just extra hungry at night. What I do know is that 4 hours of broken sleep is taking its toll and I feel like a zombie pretty much all day. This is where you come in. I am very open to any of your suggestions/tips/advice/criticism...
