Alright mamas, we're scattered about in different places (July 2010 chats, 8-10 months sleep regression thread, etc.) but let's all come together here and support each other as we go through this challenging phase in our babe's lives. (Key word: phase. For some of us, a long hellish exhausting phase with seemingly no end in site but STILL, just a phase!)
It sort of reminds me of the TTC forum, anybody hang out there when they were trying to get pregnant? We can all commiserate here until we each get our BFSTTN (that would be Big Fat Sleeping Through The Night) instead of our BFP's.
So come out, all of you. Grab a cup of coffee, prop your eyelids open with some toothpicks, and share your story.
Me: DS is 9.5 months old. Slept like a dream for the first 3.5 months, waking only to eat. By 8 weeks or so he was doing nice 5 or 6 hour stretches. Slept through the night exactly once on October 17, 2010. Hit the 4 month sleep regression and we've been in sleep hell ever since - if he sleeps a 4 hour stretch I start to worry that he's dead. We cosleep. My recent (small) success is that he finally no longer needs his Woombie. Current frustration is no time in the evening for myself. Last night he went down at 7:08 and then at 7:15, he coughed and it woke him up. I didn't get him back down until 8. I feel like I haven't seen my husband in weeks, and it seriously seems inconceivable to me that he will ever sleep through.
