Feb 16, 2012 · Baby sleep disorder? in About Kids & Teens

I have a 7 month old baby girl who has developed some very serious sleeping issues in the last 2 or 3 months. I will mention that she was born a month premature due to an emergency situation. I believe it is because of this that we have dealt with colic, digestive issues, and now the sleeping problems. Bedtime is a huge battle with her crying and screaming. When we finally do get her to sleep it’s still not over. The then wakes up every hour crying. Nap time is also a constant battle and she rarely gets a nap longer than 30 minutes long. Because of this cycle she is constantly cranky and my husband and I are exhausted. Her pediatrician has diagnosed her with GERD and she has tried two different medications for it. I do not, however, believe this has anything to do with her sleeping issues. We have tried sleep training but nothing has worked. I am wondering if anyone has gone through something similar to this or if they know of any sleep disorders in infants. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated.
