Yesterday resulted in a 2 hour battle where in the end, I basically gave up. Today started off about the same. He didn't want me to leave the room. Each time I went to check on him or see what was wrong, the screams escalated. Finally, I kissed him, put him back into bed (for the thousandth time it felt like), and walked out. There was screaming and he trashed his room (again), but he finally fell asleep on a stack of huggies.
Whew that was rough.. During these nap refusals, his eyes are so heavy he can barely hold them open. Anyway, today he's napping. I hear him moving already, so I imagine nap will be 'short' today. But I'll take a short nap over screaming.
He was up twice last night too. Sigh... it was SOOOOOO much easier when he was still in the crib.
Oh poor you and baby. Sickness does a rela number on sleep hang in thereReplyDelete
Yeah, it's been rough! Thankfully he slept last night. Today's nap was very short, but hopefully we are making progress!Delete
The sleep deprivation is one of the hardest parts of motherhood, especially when they are sick. There were a couple of years when I felt I had no sleep at all. Thankfully, they do eventually embrace sleep (especially after they get to school, they become tired from all the learning and activities).ReplyDelete
