I used to be on here a lot complaining about Henry's bad sleep, but I've pretty much been MIA lately, but it's hard to get on here with an extremely active (and fast) little guy! I've also been lucky enough to have found a mom's group IRL that is wonderful and I have contact with daily.
Anyway....for those of you who have no idea of our story....Henry has been waking up every 2 hours (about that) since he was born. We have tried every suggestion under the sun with the exception of CIO. We've had one 3 hour stretch and one 4 hour stretch ONCE each.
The past week he has been waking every 40-60 minutes and taking 10-20 minutes to fall back asleep. Last night when he woke up for the second time (went to sleep at midnight, and was awake twice by 1:30) I started screaming. My whole body started shaking and tensed up, I felt like I was going to physically throw Henry at the wall. I quickly handed him to my husband (who is not an active participant in the night time wakings due to multiple factors) and got back into bed to cry to myself about what just happened.
I'm not looking to be flamed here (which I think rarely happens on this board anyway- one of the reasons it's the board I call 'home'). And yes, I understand the severity of the issue. I just needed to come clean with some "friends". I don't want to share with my IRL friends, but ignoring it makes it feel like it didn't happen. (And yes, I will be sharing it with a health care professional as well, so please don't tell me I'm BSC and need help!)
Now I STILL have a baby who doesn't sleep and I feel like a horrible mother. G-R-E-A-T!
