After Max's first surgery, we were really lucky because we avoided most of the sleeping craziness that everyone talks about. He took great naps, slept well at night, and we all breathed a sigh of relief.
We're not so lucky this time. We're about 10 days post-op, and he is not sleeping well at all. The only way he sleeps is if he's nursing, and even then he can't really seem to settle himself down. He was up crying so many times last night I lost count. I've tried having my husband help, but that just makes him scream bloody murder. We're all super exhausted, but me being in the first few weeks of pregnancy doesn't help either. We've tried giving him medication before bed, and that doesn't seem to help eiether.
Suggestions anyone? He's been a cosleeper since birth, and I don't mind him nursing at night, but the constant waking up and crying is making me feel a bit nutty! How long does it last? Is there anything special you did, or did it just take time??
