Book received by now and I've started the standard method (tried at least).
Basically, the process that should take in total 1,5 hours goes much faster (a little more than 1 hour) and baby is not always going to sleep after that.
So I have a few questions!
It looks more or less like this so far:
- Breast 1, burp, breast 1 again, burp, change diaper takes about 30 minutes.
- Socialization about 15 minutes. After she gets grumpy most of the time.
- Breast 2, burp about 15 minutes
- Sleep (after 10 minutes... Or not...)
=> sometimes, she just doesn't want to sleep at all and start crying as soon as she is in the bed.
I tried to feed more or to calm her down in the arms (I understood I shouldn't do that but when the feeding more emergency plan is not working...) and she doesn't necessarily fall asleep at all.
Some other times, she fall asleep fast but wake up quickly and really often.
She's basically waking up all the time and really fast, in the "normal" case of the standard method AND in the case of emergency extra feeding due to crying :/
From the beginning, and in general, she doesn't have a good deep sleep.
It's happening very rarely.
It's very tiring for me and even more for her indeed (she really seems to fight not to sleep sometimes).
I've been feeding her a lot lot lot the last days until I could read more about the standard method and apply it, but it didn't seems to influenced her sleeping behavior so far...
She still have this very light sleep and sleep a few minutes here and there (5, 10 or 15 minutes, sometimes up to 45 minutes, not more really).
She sleeps a little more in a row at night (2 hours) but never goes back to sleep easily after eating... (Usually the first meal during night she goes back to sleep quite fast, but second time average is 2 hours and it can take up to 3 hours....
Also, sometimes the pacifier seems necessary with her as she needs to suck but don't want to it after I proposed her the breast many many times...
I really don't know how to handle this and I haven't find in the book how to handle it (the contemplating method doesn't work good on her during day, and I don't know what to do at night really as I guess it should stay dark).
Thanks in advance!
