Guys, remember when I was barking up Henry’s tree for his great routine? Remember when he was doing 5-7 hour sleep stretches?
Well, I’m having a hard time remembering because it’s been SO LONG. Henry has turned into the worst dang sleeper ever.
If Henry could speak, this is what my nights would sound like (every 1.5-2 hours, start to finish):
Hey ma, I just farted… Can you come rock me back to sleep?
Momma, I dreamed I was drinking milk and now I’m thirsty. Can I have a sip?
Mommy, did you just try to put me down???? In my crib!!!? Pick me up immediately or I’ll wake the toddler!
Momma, I have hands! Now nurse me back to sleep!
Mommy, let’s snuggle (or I’ll scream).
You get the picture…
I don’t even think he’s hungry most of the time. He just wants to be snuggled NON STOP!
Don’t get me wrong, I love how cuddly and sweet he is, but time and place, Henry. Time and place.
Essentially, I’m haggard and tired and fed up. We need to sleep train STAT, but I don’t want the toddler to suffer. Ugh. Dilemmas.
We just spent way too much money on a ZipadeeZip… Please say this will be our magic fix.
Let me know if you have helpful suggestions. I’m tired (understatement) and about to go back to work…
