My 8 month old has never been a good sleeper but this week is worse than ever. I have 2 older kids who go to school and after school activities, I can't read the cues and just put bub down to sleep when she's tired or kids will miss school or be left there with no one to pick them up. I borrowed the happy sleeper from the library and I'm so gutted to read that it's another version of let them cry. I tried leaving her for a few minutes but she got so upset when she finally slept in my arms it was a short nap. I'm lying in the bed now while she roams around her cot wide awake. It's raining so I can't take her for a walk I'm just lying here crying not having the faintest idea what to do, unless she falls asleep in the next 10mins or so I will have to wake her for the school run and have had no time to catch up on housework. Seriously think running the country would be less stressful at least I'd have some advisors! Anyone else end up in tears over their child's sleep issues??
