My son who recevied his 2 month shots on Tuesday from the ped. who gives bad parenting advice but anyway my son wont sleep well now. AHHH, I just dont know whats going on with him. He will be 10 weeks old on Wednesday just to give you his age. He usually takes at least 2 naps a day which last 2-3 hours but now he wont sleep. He will fall asleep and 5 minutes later wake right up and begin to suck his hand. I know he is not hungry because I nurse frequently and he empties both br___ts. This hand sucking is a brand new thing and he constantly has it in his mouth. I co-sleep and last night he kept waking up after falling asleep and then he is just wide awake but then I give him my br___t to suck on which puts him right back to sleep. I dont get it. Could this be an early growth spurt? Could he be teething? Do you have any solutions or ideas for me to try to get him to stay asleep? Thank you, Jessica

Wow. My baby is just like yours. She will be 10 weeks on Thursday and she received her shots last Thursday. She always has her hand in her mouth too. Last night it took me 3 hours from 7pm to 10pm to get her to sleep. She would eat (b___stfed), fall asleep at the b___st and as soon as I would put her in her crib she would wake back up in 5 or 10 minutes. I asked my ped. if she could be teeting already and he said it is possible that they can start this early but he said its likely the first tooth won't cut for another 2-4 months. So it could be that. Or I think it could be just a reaction from the shots. Last night I just tried to let her cry it off (I'm not for it) for a half hour then I went in and gave her a paci, (she usually doesn't need one) and she actually took it and fell asleep and didn't wake up until 5:30am, which is really good for her.

Mary are babies seem very similar. Has your baby girl always sucked on her hand or did it just start? My son is b___stfed also and does the same as your dd by falling asleep at the b___st and then waking right up. How in the world did you get her to sleep until 5. I am also not one for the CIO but I too let my ds cry for about 10 minutes this morning and he fell asleep for 30 minutes and that was iy. I am going to go crazy right now. I have absolutely no time to do anything such as clean etc.. I hope this ends soon or I find a solution. He wont take a pacifier but he loves to suck on my finger. I just dont know.
