not sleeping

I wrote about how easy it was to get Ky to sleep, and how it is not currently.

We go back and forth between good night of sleep, and sleepless nights.

I’ve written on sleep so many times. He’s doing great!  He won’t sleep.  He’s back to being great!  He won’t sleep!

I think I have him figured out now.

He’s a great sleeper, unless I blog about him sleeping well.

Really I think he’s a good sleeper as long as he’s feeling well.

(Here I tried swaddling.  It didn’t work.)

Dylan wants to try cry it out.  I don’t.

I am confident that once this set of teeth come in he’ll go back to normal.

It’s been a rough few weeks between, the stomach bug, painful teeth, and Dylan being sick.

Dylan has a hard time believing that other parents miss out on sleep to comfort their children.

I feel like I’m going through my day in a fog.

Most nights he ends up here, in our bed.  On good nights it is at 7am so that he can nurse before I go to work.  On bad nights we fall asleep together to begin with.  We love cuddling with him, and feel confident with the research and our own sleeping styles that he is perfectly safe with us.

Any other parents up at night?

Nope. lol Riley was just plain and simple a good sleeper. Kaleigh could care less about sleep and we stayed up often to tend to her. With Lily I get sleep if she is having a good night or not. She sleeps well for the most part, but on the nights that she wakes, Andy grabs her, checks her diaper, sets her next to me and she nurses back to sleep while I pretty much stay asleep the whole time.

I absolutely hear you! Ales has wonderful nights and then has her rough nights. I allow her to cry when it is the one she uses to keep herself awake - but only for about 5 minutes (it feels like forever). You need to do what you feel is best as a mom. A friend told me that your child's cry makes you feel things that no one else gets and I didn't understand it until I had Ales. I'm sure you and Dylan will figure things out and I'll be praying that Kyton gets those teeth soon!!!

I'm up!!! Sean is also starting to push the "cry it out" method of sleep training. We did this with our daughter, and it worked within 3-5 miserable nights. I realize that Ethan does not need to be up and eating as often as he is, but for some reason I'm dragging my feet on trying to change it. We have rough nights more than good ones, and I'm so tired each morning, but I'm afraid I will miss those late night feedings once they stop for good... Plus, I also hold out hope that once these first teeth are in, he'll start to sleep better on his own. I haven't slept through the night myself in easily a year now, when you factor in those last months of pregnancy. I wouldn't know what to do with more than 3 solid hours!
