Ummm I'm up with the kids and DH is still in bed??
Pls can someone explain that to me??
Go, back to bed, kick him in the shins and him after 2 weeks away eating, drinking, sleeping, relaxing and partying when he wants, its your turn for a sleep in and he needs to tend to both boys.
Heck he can do it every Saturday and Sunday for you for the next 7 weeks =14 days. Even then he wont be anywhere close to even with you doing it all 24/7 for 2 weeks!
Sorry, tell me to pull my head in but I'm so angry for you right now!!!
If love to go back to bed but my friend will be here any minute.
I am going to put ds2 with him though and tell him he's gotto change his happy (just done another poo)
Ds1 is watching tv.
He did say he is taking both kids later I I can rest (he said it yesterday) but who knows... Even if he did I can't sleep during the day!
Last night going to bed (11ish) I woke my DS2 up when I had a coughing fit. I was worried that he would be up for a few hours like the night before. But he had a HUGE feed and then slept through until 7am. My ds1 used to have a HUGE 220ml dreamfeed bottle and would sleep until 7.
Perhaps there is a connection between a huge feed (bedtime or dream) and sleeping through? How do your bubs feed at bed time/dreamfeedish time?
Sorry if I am throwing everyone off track with a bum steer.
I found being full was the key to my DDs sleep at that age, problem was getting the right amount in her. Its such a balancing act isn't it?
How does he get off to sleep at the moment?
Does everyone have a rough nap schedule yet? I found Jo Ryan had a great schedule that was quite flexible still and not as rigid as others. I also found that helped with DDs eating and sleep - albeit it was months before she learned to self settle and was still waking twice a night, but it helped the crazy might time waking.
I would put DS1 in bed with him like every one suggested for play time lol if Dd gets up before DP I always tell her to go wake him
DP got up twice last night for dummy duty.
Took DS dummy away when he was 3 months for over nights but am finding he wants it a lot lately and I just don't have the patience to take it away again.
Me + DP 01.03.2010 = DD 22.02.2011 + DS 20.01.2014 = <3
@SAgirl DH's birthday present = quality time with the kids day/night for the weekend?
It sounded like he understood what it has been like for you when he was up too the other night with the kids. It's a bit self-indulgent to be angry at your email. He's the one who's been blinkered this whole time while you've been struggling.
So glad your mum's all okay. That would have been absolutely terrifying.
From waking every 10 mins day and night he suddenly started doing this overnight! I've been putting him down sleepy but still awake, and he's been putting himself to sleep after about 30 seconds of whinging.
Yesterday was a different story with him only having 3 x 10 min naps all day. It's partly my fault as I didn't get him down for his morning nap in time and he was over-tired. It seems to be that if he doesn't go down for his morning nap as soon as he's showing tired signs, sleep for the rest of the day is elusive.
