what would you do? Geric and I are seriously at our wits end with our little Jacob and his nighttime sleep. I need some advice from other mommies, pronto!
He usually goes to bed around 7 and sleeps really well until 1 or 2. Then he wakes up screaming! He doesn’t want to be held or rocked. He just screams. So the logical thing to do would be to leave him in his bed and let him cry himself back to sleep, right? BUT, Caden is about five feet away and that’s really a terrible idea. So, we’ve been moving him to the pack n play in our room and we move out to the couches. He’ll usually cry for about 10 minutes and then fall alseep until 4am when he starts screaming again. Usually I go put the binky back in his mouth and shut the door and put in my earplugs, but last night Caden woke up so we moved Jacob back to his bed and brought Caden into our bed with us. (We moved back.) Caden played around in our bed until 6:30 when he was awake for the day… and a total terror! Jacob cried for about 10 minutes (again) and then fell back to sleep until 8am. THIS IS CRAZY AND IT CANNOT CONTINUE!!! It’s like we’re playing “musical beds” all night long. We’re all tired and extremely grumpy! Maybe we should turn our playroom/den area into mine and Geric’s room for a while. But that’s totally weird because there’s no door and it’s like our family room. Help! I’m dying over here! Help!
