Baby is not sleeping well. Or more accurately, the baby is not allowing me to sleep well. She continues to go for six hour stretches just not at times that are convenient for sleeping. Last night she went to sleep at 9pm, I woke her at 11pm to feed her and then she was up again at 1am, 2:15am, 3:30am and 5am. I can not survive on this amount of broken sleep. Again more accurately, I feel I cannot do my job safely with this amount of sleep.
And she’s still not sleeping in a bed, she’s in the swing. She reacts to lying flat on a bed (or crib, basinett, floor, basically any flat surface) with mild hysteria and much screaming. Maybe we should stop electrifying the cribs? But seriously, I’m ready for some sleep training and I don’t know where to begin. Jeffrey was just so easy as far as sleeping went, I’m not sure where to start. She’ll be four months old in a few days. I don’t want these patterns to become routine.
As far as the older child is concerned? We’re potty training and his nights are occasionally peppered with night terrors. His rescheduled surgery is on for the 10th of August. I can’t wait for all this crap to be done. I need some calm to recharge and feel human again. And possible a whole night of sleep as well.
