This will be a ramble because I am absolutely sleep deprived and stressed, and I cry when I'm like this, but I need to get it out before DH wakes up and I unload on him.
So, DH is on a weeks holidays, and I asked very nicely if he could get up to DS one night and let me have a sleep in, it would be one of the only nights 'off' I have had in a full year. Now DS doesn't sleep, in the past when I couldn't settle him I would just lay on the couch with him til he fell asleep, but he is getting too big now and he can't get comfortable, so I have had about 8 weeks of spending about 3 hours in the middle of EVERY night, trying to get him back to sleep ( which is what I need advise on??)
So, it's now Thursday and still no sleep for me, in addition I can't even catch up through the day cos DH wants to do something, and thinks I'm wasting my day having a snooze while DS is napping (mind you he has been having a nap every arvo...) I don't know how much more I can deal with, it's supposed to be easier having 2 parents home, but it's as if he thinks he is on holidays from both work and us! Last night I cooked dinner with DS at my feet whingeing the whole time, then when we sat down to eat, DS through a tantrum, so I picked him up and let DH eat, then when he finished he got up and walked off to fix himself a drink and headed outside... So I tried eating cold steak with a 1yo on my lap!
I don't know the point of this really, but im struggling! At least my big baby is going back to work next week, but how do I get my little one to sleep... Please give me the magic secret for making a 1yo sleep in their own cot for longer than 2 hours???
