I have learned to live with sleep deprivation, although my dh thinks I am just a bear, I think I do okay. Ds is my 4th and only one was a good sleeper. I just kiss him when he wakes up in the middle of the night and realize, This too shall pass, because with my other 3, it has and I miss them. They are 13, 12 and 8. Hang in there!
Awww thank you!
This thread is making me feel better, I guess 4 times is not that horrible when I read some of y'all's stories!
: It's just that everyone keeps asking me if he's sleeping through the night and it makes me wonder if he's supposed to (I didn't think so). My sister's DD however (who was born on the same day as DS), is sleeping through the night!
But she believes in CIO and I obviously don't.
Well here's what I did the last 2 nights: When he first goes to sleep at night, I put him in his crib. Then when he woke up after his long stretch of sleep (about 3 hours) he didn't want to sleep in his crib anymore (he kept waking up as soon as I put him in there, I tried like 3 times in a row after nursing him to sleep!). So I kept him in bed with me, way on the other side of the bed and both of us actually slept pretty good! Last night he only woke up TWICE. Well, twice he only woke up a little and fell right back asleep without me having to nurse him, and twice I did have to nurse him. So that was pretty good. Maybe I'll just keep doing that, if he doesn't stay asleep in his crib after his long stretch. Oh and I told DH that if he gets up before 6am, he can fix his own breakfast and lunch (I prepare most of it in the evening anyway).
