    That in itself made me feel slightly better and showed me he still does care.
    How much $ would he lose if he didn't go on the trip? Hopefully his parents will be more of a help than a hindrance (like my mil would be). Vent on here if you need to xx

    Recently I did a couple of interstate trips travelling on my own with my 2yo and 6mo. My sister said ASK FOR HELP. I thought it was stupid advice at the time as of course I would ask for help when I needed it. But when I was travelling her words rang in my head and I asked for help not when NEEDED but WANTED. Yes I can juggle DD2 while I help DD1 to the toilet. Or I can buzz the flight attendant and ask her for help. Or ask someone to pick something up for me when I'm wearing DD2. People wanted to help. Twice people carried DD1 down the plane steps without me even asking. They got a nasty shock as she's much heavier than she looks!

    So just ask for help. Have a friend around for dinner and get her to bath the kids while you cook dinner. I sometimes hire a carer from DD1s child care to come play with the kids while I catch up on housework. With DD2 playing up with sleep my sister drove to my place two weekend in a row to stay to help me catch up on sleep. She has 2 kids and lives 3 hrs drive away. It's not in our nature to accept help but people like helping.

    I bet he feela terrible and scared right now he obviously wasn't thinking when he booked this. At least you know he loves and cares for you and hopefully the next 2 weeks fly by. How's your little one going?

    Thanks everyone, yes he doesn't feel so great about his trip anymore. I am sad about that in a way as despite him being an *** sometimes, when he shows me he cares etc then he really means it and he is a good person, he just loses his way in his selfishness sometimes. Also TBH id rather him enjoy it, than not, as I don't want him going again. Well not without us! Or such short notice.
    @VicPark - he would lose all the money he paid which unfortunately was about $3500!!!

    Ridiculous!!!

    Anyway, too late now, he's either there already or almost there. But I wouldn't want him to have cancelled anyway as it would just cause more resentment.

    How did you go last night SAgirl and everyone else?

    I only had one get up! She was soooo settled, I think the reflux meds might be helping touch wood.

    Ds1 woke once before I went to bed asking for daddy, DS2 woke 5 times and wanted to be fed every time

    But he didn't sleep with a dummy half the night AND he didn't wake every hour from 3/4am as he normally does, so that was a little better.

    That 2nd tooth is finally through properly!! So maybe that's why he was a boy more settled? He also woke at 7am and didn't cry and also didn't cry in the night which was a nice change.

    Hopefully we are on the up? But I don't want to get my hopes up.

    I managed to get him fed at 7am this morning so I am going to try put him down at 9 as per SOS and not use dummy but I don't think if that's going to work... We will see

    Shame poor little man. Do they know what's wrong yet?

    DS just cannot self settle after the first sleep cycle of 30-40 mins yesterday he hardly slept and was completely exhausted by 5pm

    I'm trying to do SOS but it's near impossible with him I just don't know what to do. He just won't sleep!!

    He wakes up crying and then if I leave him he ends up screaming. I can't even have a rest when he does anymore as he just doesn't rest WHY!!???!!?

    It's not his teeth, those are through already. Ever since this stupid 4 month sleep regression he has forgotten how to self settle I'm over it. I'm sick of it

    Dad is here but no help at all so far I knew this would happen
