Go the frack to sleep!

For the past week or so it's such a fight to get lo to sleep! I start around 8 or 9 and she fights me until usually midnight. She always ends up in our bed because anywhere else and she's up again in half an hour so then I go sleep on the couch once she's out just to get some rest. It's driving me crazy! We've tried swaddling and even setting a sock full of rice on her so she feels like it's my hand. I tried the happiest baby on the block too. What am I missing? ! She's up at 5:20 right now, went to bed at 12, woke up at 4 in our bed, ate and is ready to party

  • Read your title and thought of that awesome bedtime book. Ha.

    I'm sorry for your troubles. Hopefully it's just a phase... Prayers you get a little more sleep...

    That is frustrating. Although I'm jealous of her sleeping 12 to 4! My son's up every 2 hours and is usually in my bed by 6 am so I can get more sleep.

  • I could've written this post myself! I'm sorry I have no advice to offer, I'm just as lost as you are. Hang in there.

  • Heck let her sleep with you. My LO sleeps through the night when she sleeps with me, I have a bed rail up and so there is no worry of her falling off the bed. I am enjoying the 6 to 8 hours straight sleep to fight making her sleep in her own bed yet. I am learning more and more everyday about doing what works for your family and not what others think or say. Letting her sleep with me has allowed me to recover easier from my cs and feel more human cause I am getting sleep.

  • I never thought I'd cosleep until I had baby#2. I'm still not entirely comfortable with it, but I don't think I'd ever have gotten any sleep if I didn't let her sleep on my chest with me stretched out on the chaise those first couple of weeks. I transitioned her to the PNP for a few weeks, but still next to me and in the past week, she is in her crib, in her room and doing well.

    Good for you! I like sleeping with her but I'd like my bed and sanity back.
