I love Will. I love him. I love him. I love him.
But I don’t always have to like him!
I don’t think we have gotten anymore than two nights of sleep in a row since the day this child was born. This kid wakes up at least 3 nights out of every week. And I’m not talking about the kind of wake up where you run into his room, pat his back, give him a drink of water and whisper words of comfort then tip toe back into your warm bed and go back to sleep. No, I’m talking about 3 to 4 hours of screaming. SCREAMING!
Last night he spent more time between the hours of 2:30 and 5 in the corner than he did in his crib.
Nothing works. No form of sleep training. NOTHING. Some have suggested allergies or asthma which I will question the Dr. about but he is showing no signs in his normal day to day life and the fact that he is happy as a lark if we let him sit on the couch or come into bed with us leads me to believe this is behavioral and not a health related issue.
We are at our wits end. I’m always cranky. I’m always tired. I just want to feel like a human being again! I am seriously considering reaching out to a sleep expert.
Excuse me while I go and get another cup of coffee!
