regardless, i'm ready (needing) to do something, or, i will lose my mind.
i'm too tired to remove him w/the PPO (Pantley Pull Off), and i'm too tired to try to get him to sleep other than nursing as w/the Gordon method.
i do NOT want to wean, nor do i want to remove him from the fam ily bed. i would just LOVE to be able to sleep in 2hr bursts. i feel that i'm not asking for much.
http://www.pediatrics.org/cgi/conten...e2=tf_ipsecsha basically i will wake him up before he wakes, which, eventually, will cause him to *wait* to be woken. and MAYBE, i can get a 2 hr stretch. (boy, bringing a newborn into the family will be easy w/my sleep experience!!)
anyhow, i need help w/the logistics. i want to....gulp....wake him up every 30 min. there is NO way i'll be able to wake up and reset the alarm that many times w/o throwing it out the window. and snooze doesn't give me that long (does it?)
what to do??
i need some ideas!!
p.s. i wanted to add, that this will NOT pass. he's been waking every 40 min (approx) since he was about 7 months old--he is now 15 months old. chiropractor did not help.
