HI everybody I need some advise. I am so tired and exausted about the way I put my boys to sleep. They are 20 months and I have done attachment parenting until then.They are still nursed day and night but now I thikn I have hit my limit and I am about to go to the dartk side.It makes me sad but my boysa re now at an age where they do not understand no and it is time to sleep and laugh in my face and it is absically a fight party call it waht you want with me in the middle trying to wrestle them down to sleep. I have tried to lye them down and walk away but now they get out of there twins beds and laugh and think it is a game.I ahve no way of restraining them and let them realize that itis over.
To make a short story I use to rock them to sleep in a fisher price little bouncy chair but at around 14 months it did not work so I purchase twin beds put them on the floor and would lye with them or rub their bellies taht use to take about 15-30 ,minutes and they were asleep after they had nursed. Now it seems that they are getting more mischievious and do not wnat to sleep and I can be an hour at nap time trying to put them down. I have another daughter to get to sleep so she has to wait.
We have been at our cottage for 3 weeks and I am thinking to put them back in there crib actually they have never slept in it it will be a change of routine and nursing them and reading some books kissinhg them and putting them in hte crib and leaving and doing the 5 m inutes routine until they fall asleep I know it will be brutal nut i feel I am at the end of my rope and I am tired of spending all my spare evening time putting them to sleep. I love cuddling with htem but not my hwole evening and anywya they are back in my bed after there first awakening which is around midnight anyway.
I am sorry I ahd to vent and would greatly appreciate a response or comments or suggestions on how to handle busy twin toddlers.
