Sleep: Sleep has become a battle. Whereas once we were enjoying 5-8 hour stretches at night, Everly now wakes every 2-3 hours, the discomfort of her reflux startling her from her slumber. It has been exhausting for us all, and I feel more tired now that I did in those early newborn days. Nap times are even more difficult and hard to come by. Lengthy rocking, shushing, and nursing are all required to lull her to sleep, all the while she is screaming like a cat, and a mere 40 minutes later after she has finally drifted off, she will start crying again. I wish sleep didn’t have to be this difficult for her.
