Someday I hope to be able to sleep later than 6 AM.  Baby woke up this morning around 5 AM, and would not go back to sleep.  I finally got up around 5:45, because I could not take the babbling and fussing any longer.  He was still tired.  I probably should have put him back to sleep at 6 AM.  Sigh.  Hindsight is 20/20 or better.

I am still putting him down for two naps every day.  Not sure if he really needs the morning nap, though it is fairly long when he does finally get to sleep.  Both naps are usually 1-1.5 hours.  So maybe he still does.  I try to play it by ear.  But it may be time to force the issue.

Baby's sleep has been strange lately, though.  Two naps a day, and waking at least once every night.  I think one of the night wakings is for a needed feeding, though.  I stopped pumping at work, so I think my supply during the day is down.  I think he may need the midnight feed still, so I am all right with that.  Waking at 5 AM when I do not have to, not so much.  So frustrating.  And difficult to figure out when you are sleep deprived.

Sort of a rambly post. Just want to be able to get more sleep, and not sure what to do!

Yes - everything is jumbly when you're running on minimal sleep.

We recently transitioned to one nap a day. It was a tough time because I would try to run on Skeeter's clues as to if he needed to nap or not and his clues weren't always real clear.

I hope you and Little Dude figure something out soon!
