So dd was is 3 weeks old and ds seems to be struggling a bit. DH went back to work and he is a fifo worker so back to work means just me, ds and dd at home.
During the day he does ok, he just gets a little frustrated but I make sure I put dd down and spend plenty of one on one time with him. Once it's night time it's a whole other story. He likes to have his hand held to go to sleep, this is a real struggle with dd though sometimes. I try to wait for her to go to sleep but her "witching hour" is his bed time. So that special time for him is now shared. He will then once I'm alseep during the night come into our room to find me but not wake me up. I know tis because a few times I have been feeding dd. so because he doesn't wake me up, something he would always do before dd he does either of the following,
-sleeps somewhere random ie dogs bed, floor, couch
-cries somewhere random.
I wake up to the crying and obviously go to console him and put him back in his bed, he goes straight to sleep. But when he doesn't wake me up and just sleeps somewhere random I have no idea how long he has been awake etc.
I know a part if the problem will be that dd is a cosleeper (no judgement please) and ds was a cosleeper until he moved into his own bed. He moved because he wanted to at the time. He from that point 6 months ago slept in his bed from 8am - 8pm without a problem.
I don't know what to do! He can't keep sleeping in random places or just crying.
This happens 4-5 times a night so between him and dd I'm getting 2-3 hrs sleep a night and I'm exhausted! Please help me!
*edited because dd hit send early.
Me + DH = DS and DD
