I don't know what to do with my girls. Every time I try to get them to sleep it's a struggle, and if I have them both on my own they're both screaming. If I have one and someone else has the other, it's a struggle to get the one I have to sleep (nursing to sleep) while the other cries from the other end of the house. Without nursing, there's no hope whatsoever that either will go to sleep, unless they're taken for a walk, in which case it's 50/50 whether they'll have a short nap while walking. Obviously that doesn't work for nighttime. (I'm desperate, but not desperate enough to walk all night)
I don't know what to do. I haven't had more than three hours sleep since they were 4 months old (they slept through the night then). I'm getting a lot of criticism from everyone in my life, and right now I'm just about coming around to considering adoption to get them someone who can actually take care of them. Because I am exhausted and feeling incompetent.
I'm at a loss. They won't sleep. Trying to "put them down sleepy" results in a gently put down sleepy girl who turns quickly into a screaming girl who also kicks her sister. I can separate them to deal with the kicking, but they hear the screaming from the other end of the house (and I don't want to put a screaming baby on her own downstairs so I can get the other baby to sleep anyway)
I tried local support groups, but they seem to only have pregnant women and those with one and two month olds. Apparently everyone with older babies is able to cope just fine except me.
