Congratulations, Mama! Your family really knows how to sleep well. Keep up the good work, and be sure not to brag too loudly about how awesome your little one is with their sleep skill! ;)

Your current sleep struggle could go either way, Mama. Right now,it seems like your little one is dependent on a sleep prop or two (feeding,rocking, cuddling, pacifier, movement) to fall asleep, though sleep is not an “all consuming” task for you, yet!
My biggest recommendation for you is to get things taken care of BEFORE IT GETS WORSE.
The quickest way through any sleep struggle is making sure your little one has the skill of falling asleep on their own. Once that skill is established, you can toss the props out the window and will be good to go for a full night sleep and quality daytime naps!

YIKES -- It seems like your little one is heavily dependent on a sleep prop or two or three (feeding, rocking, cuddling, pacifier, movement, etc) to fall asleep and as a result, sleep is “all consuming” task for you! You will pull your hair out if you have to continue to work this hard to get your little one to sleep or spend one more minute worrying about your sleep struggle.
My biggest recommendation for you is to get a plan in place to fix this ASAP. The quickest way through your current sleep struggle is making sure your little one has developed the skill of falling asleep on their own. Once that skill is established, you can toss the props out the window and will be good to go. Sleep can be a reality for you again, I promise!
