    Default Sleep vents

    A place to vent your frustrations regarding the nocturnal habits of your offspring without being judged. This is a supportive place, regardless of sleep methods used or not used- because let's face it- when all is said and done, if you're posting in this thread your child most likely is not a perfect sleeper, and we all know that sleep deprivation is a form of torture. So to you. Vent away and make yourself feel maybe even a little bit better

    I'll start.

    Dd started off being a great sleeper. Waking once a night around 4am. Now she has regressed to the point if waking every sleep cycle and wanting my help to resettle. In desperation I bought her into my bed, and now I'm afraid I will have a lot of trouble getting her out. She has almost grown her bassinet, I know I'll have to start getting her to sleep in her cot in her room at the other end of the house of a night, I just fear getting up several times and walking that far. I could sleep in the bed in her room no worries, but I know dp will feel rejected. Just annoyed its gotten this bad. She was supposed to be my good sleeper after the hell I went through with twins.

    Subbing, although we are going through a relatively ok period, it doesn't last and I will want to find this thread.

    Great idea Nomsie

    That sux Nomsie I wish I had words of advice to help!

    I want to vent that I finally have a baby who sleeps at night (dont want to rub it in, read on!) But DS2 wakes up multiple times every night needing cuddles to calm him down and he wont let DH resettle him, he becomes violent if DH or anyone but me goes near him, so It all falls on me. I am completely and utterly exhausted.

    Hi @Nomsie *hugs*

    Argh, sleep seems to be a constant problem in this house!! We had such a hard time with DS1 who is now 3 and still won't go to sleep on his own and wakes most nights. DH and I had so many arguments about it and at some points I felt like I was going insane from sleep deprivation and of continually failing to get any techniques to work. And now DS2 appears to be going down the same path at almost 6 months. Same thing: catnapping, not self- settling, waking every 1-2 hours. And I guess the common factor here is me

    Like you, after the first or second wake, I just co-sleep so I can get some rest. DH is p*ssed off at me because I won't let him CIO and it's my fault that both boys don't sleep well.

    It seems like a complete fantasy to wish for a night where both kids sleep and me and DH actually get to spend some time together and sleep in the same bed again...

    DS is 2 in a week. I am resigning myself to the fact that his sleep will not be consistent for many more years. I'm told most likely until he starts school . It sucks never being able to predict how our nights will go. I kept notes this week and it's all ovaaaaah the shop!

    My secret admission; hearing stories from people about their kids sleeping through makes me recoil. I'm sorry I can't help it.

    @babyla I have the same reaction. I grit my teeth and grin but die a little inside. My aunt told me gently over Christmas that my cousin who has a ds exactly a month younger than dd has started sleeping through the night. I could have almost cried. It was my turn for a good sleeper, dammit! I've done my waiting! (I feel like adding "12 years of it! In Azkaban!" Lol but I think my humour gets worse when I am sleep deprived lol!)

    Argh! It's awful isn't it. A friend told me their mother said after 4 kids, she only ever got up 3 times. One word.. Liar. My DH has told me he sees my physical reaction when people talk about their kids sleeping through every night. I feel for you Noms, it should be your turn for a good sleeper. It's a big reason I'm scared to have another child, the thought of another $hitty sleeper makes my heart race.

    I was dumb and thought surely I wouldn't get two bad sleepers! Wrong.
