About a week ago, I wrote this post; where Elise woke up at 11:30 and cried until 2:00 am with a BG in the 300s. Well, she has been doing that pretty much every night since. Her BG isn't always so high (ranges from 188-362), but I just can't figure out what's going on.
At almost 11:30 pm on the dot, I can hear her start stirring over the monitor. Then she starts to cry. So we go in to check her, and since we don't correct her at night, we let her be. We try to soothe her, and get her to calm down and tell her that she needs to go back to sleep. We're trying not to start taking her out of her crib to cuddle her or bringing her to bed with us because those aren't things we want to become habits.
But she cries off and on for 2 to 3 hours, sometimes waking again around 4:30 am for an encore. Although these usually only last about 30 minutes.
Her BG is definitely high for that time of night, but I'm hesitant to change her bedtime NPH for two reasons; she wakes up in the morning with a BG anywhere from 100 to 251 (mostly trending towards the lower numbers), and I can't imagine trying to sneak into her room twice during the night to check her BG without her waking and doing the crying thing for three hours.
Is it the high numbers causing her to wake? I don't know. Could it be teething? Maybe. Growth spurt? Who knows? I do know that I'm exhausted, only getting about 3-4 hours of sleep a night, and I want to figure out how to make this stop.
