My LO wants to be awake until after 11. We are working on establishing a bedtime routine. He will fall sound asleep at 7pm and sometimes will sleep a long stretch until 2 or 3am. But many nights (like tonight) he wakes up at 8 and refuses to go back to sleep. Swaddling, paci, rocking, nothing works. My husband and I used to just keep him downstairs with us while we ate dinner and watched tv until he fell asleep but since we've been trying to get him established in his routine we just trade off who is trying to get him to fall asleep. We've been at this for 5 nights now and I feel like we aren't making any progress. I miss seeing my DH at night! Should we just give up and spend time together and let LO stay up with us? Argh!
