    Default How do you deal with one of "those" days?

    Having one of those days!
    Last night DD slept through her usual 3am wake up (yay) she woke up at 5:30am had breakfast a play and back to sleep then boom the ball drops in the form of a phone call the HOME number RING RIIIING RIIIIIIIIIING DD wakes up screaming and pretty much has been crying and screaming all day long. She slept maybe half an hour today I know she's tiered but she won't go to sleep she wants me to hold her but when I do she squirms and whines, I can't put her to sleep!
    So I'm sitting here with headphones on... I really don't know what else to do
    How do you deal when your baby is having one of those days?

    Sorry to hear you've had a bad day

    I hope she sleeps like a log tonight! Heck, while we're hoping for things, I hope she also sleeps in tomorrow morning and smiles all day tomorrow

    Seriously though, those days are draining. Hope you can put your feet up soon xx

    I always find leaving the house makes things better, walk in the pram or drive in the car. I hope you both get a good nights sleep after today!

    I find going out and about helps... And wine .... I know it sounds bad but half a glass of red would get me through the horror of bed time when my eldest was around 2-3... Not enough to get drunk but just had a calming effect on me... And I told myself it was good for me!

    Drive in the car. Even if they don't sleep it's time out for you.

    Or put bubba in front of Playschool for half an hour.
