Today was awful. DD (15 months) was up 10+ times last night and she was only down for 9 hours. Then she spent the morning screaming or nursing. She's nursed so much in the last 24 hours that my nipples feel like some has rubbed steel wool on them. Then she was so tired at nap time, which makes sense b/c she had an awful night of sleep. I tried for 45 minutes to get her to sleep, I rubbed her back, played with her hair, left her alone, nursed her and nothing worked. I was so frustrated I put her in her room and shut the door for 15 minutes. So I officially have done CIO and feel like crap now. I went to get her and she finally passed out on the couch for 45 minutes when naps are usually at least 90 minutes. I can't take anymore so she's watching TV right now. I feel awful, but I just can't handle her right now. Please tell me you've had bad days too.
