Our expert says:
One of the problems is that babies have a 1-hour sleep cycle. In other words, they will wake every hour. Moms, on the other hand, have a 90-minute sleep cycle. When she wakes after an hour, it seriously disrupts her sleep. and she feels terrible even if she has had many hours of sleep. The situation really only improves when the child learns that she can just roll over and go back to sleep, but that does not usually happen in less than 6 weeks.
So there is light at the end of the tunnel, but it will take time.
In the meantime you might want to chat to your pediatrician to see if there is any specific advice he can give you in your particular case.
Hang in there - ultimately its worth it!
