No matter what, it breaks down to more lack of sleep.
The past few weeks she has been going through separation anxiety from mom. She would cry when I dropped her off at daycare, she would cry when I left the room, she would cry at night when she was in her crib. She just wanted to be by mom.
Well, yesterday she didn't cry when I dropped her off. She didn't cry today either. And last night she slept in her crib all night. She didn't need to be in our bed at all. She did wake up A LOT and we had to go in there with her and rock her back to sleep, but she always let us put her back in her crib. The last few weeks, she would get this blood-curdling scream going when we would ut her in her crib. She would only sleep in her crib for an hour or two and that was it for the night, she had to be with us the rest of the night.
Well, physically I didn't get a lot of sleep when she was in our bed because she kept wanting to nurse frequently and I just don't find the position I need to lay in to nurse her in bed as very comfortable. It was tensing up some of my muscles and it would fatigue my body. Although, my mind could stay asleep, which was nice. When I have to go to her in her own room, I need to wake up more and then my mind doesn't get enough rest, but I can go back to my bed and sleep how I want to.
Plus - she's a bed hog just like her daddy. They both like to spread out as much as possible.
