Don't Be Jealous

I know you are all tired of reading about how tired I am, and how Lillian is such a crappy sleeper.  Tough.

This was my night last night, and sadly it's typical of most nights:

6:15pm bath & nurse
6:45 asleep

10:30pm awake, nurse

12am awake, nurse

12:50am awake, give pacifier

3am awake, diaper change & nurse

5am awake, nurse

6:50am awake for day

Yesterday she only took two naps, and I know she probably needed the third later in the afternoon. But even when she takes good naps during the day she still doesn't sleep great at night.

I also still swaddle her, and she's just over 5 months old. Should I try to wean her from the swaddle? She has such a hard time settling her arms and tends to flail about unless she's swaddled. How do you wean them from the swaddle?

I'm at a loss. I'm so tired that I'll do anything in the middle of the night to get her back to sleep the fastest way possible, so I know I'm reinforcing her night waking by nursing her or going to her every time she wakes. I'm sooooo tired.

On-the-verge tired.
