Right here's my morning vent.
Dd woke every 60-90 mins from 11pm onwards. I have been saved recently by my mum (who is staying with us atm from the UK) taking her when DH goes to work at 7am so I can get an extra hour or two sleep on my own and feel human.
But as we are on holiday in a little cabin this week the walls are thin and 3yo ds has a loud voice meaning I have had no extra sleep, meaning I feel royally like s#?t.
DH's response when I say how terrible I feel? Has a go because I am unable to communicate about making a decision re. Our plans for TOMORROW, moans because he never gets to sleep in and tells me how tired HE is.
Seriously?!?!!!!!???! He never has to get up in the night with her. Too right he doesn't get to sleep in.
Two sick kids. Baby awake every hour. DH doing morning shift at work. Baby just had 25 min nap instead of his usual 1.5 hours.
Surprisingly I'm not feeling tired yet but I know the crash will come.
Getting very nervous that each day and night dd is relying on me more and more to co-sleep. It was never the plan.. But I'm confused and torn whether to foster the dependence in the hopes of nurturing a happy and confident little girl who weans herself from relying on me all night, or if I should 'nip it in the bud' now?
Ds woke every 90 minutes or so over night! WTH! Cuddles, boob, dummy, nappy change and all he wanted was to play! Where is his pause button I need sleep!!
♥me & he = ds 17/9/13♥
It's probably been said before but I recommend the no cry sleep solution. By Elizabeth pantley.
It's been a life saver for me. It takes work and it does get worse before better but I'm now getting bub his cot for most sleeps and is sleeping longer than 40 min at a time. Still not add long as i need but longer.

Why is my baby even LESS inclined to go to sleep when he's sick?! Aaaargh!
Electric Boogaloo (17-03-2014)
Dd hasn't had a nap in her cot by herself for two days now. She is either beside me in bed or in my arms. I need space! ( not to mention I can't even go 2 steps away from her without her being upset!)
Tonight she is waking in her cot every 15 minutes or so. I have a few theories:
- wonder week / growth spurt
- separation anxiety
- or I have created an attached baby on a whole new plane.
I want to spend a whole night in my own bed, not crawl into her bed (kept a double bed in her room thinking it would make life easier, turns out its made it harder because she expects me to sleep with her!) every single night and spend half the night with her. I want to sleep beside my df for a whole night!
