I don't know what it is but I swear that every month he has an even age he goes through some major sleep problems and/or is really really clingy. We happen to have both right now. Yesterday he had to be right next to me, if he wasn't he threw fits. He displayed lots of tired signs so went down for a nap 1.5 hours after he got up. The first nap he slept 1.5 hours, the next was 1 hour, after that the last nap he fought so hard despite being over tired and even falling asleep for 1 or 2 minutes before rousing himself. Finally he did go down, but only for 15 minutes maybe?
Then last night he woke up at 9 after going down at 6 and stayed up until 12:40 and would only go to sleep if we sat in the rocking chair. Anywhere else and he started throwing fits. He only ate once and didn't want anything else until 3 in the morning. He started his day at 6 today.
I'm so tired and burned out from his constant "I need you next to me or need to be on you" phase. He was fine a few days ago, but it's just getting worse. I have no one to help me during the day, it's SO TIRING.
