Just ONE night of trying to get 3yo to sleep in his own room for the whole night (several wakings) and DH was falling asleep in front of the TV at 5pm. I felt like saying, yeah see what I've been going through for the past three years?! Why do you think I ended up co-sleeping?

Tonight dp finally lowered ds cot (I have been asking for over a month, I was sure he was going to fall out of the cot before he did it). Now I can at least leave him in the cot when he is awake but happy... Fingers crossed we can start working on self settling

2hrs broken sleep. Sleep deprived, and I have all three kids today as dp has gone fishing apparently.

How was today? Not too stressful I hope!
I've just left dd in the double bed in her room because she refused to settle in her cot. I put her down earlier than usual tonight at 6pm- she went to sleep a lot easier- no 90 minutes of stuffing around, and slept for 45 minutes. But since then I've been in and out far too much.
I hated putting the twins to bed at night because I had to let them both cry in their cots while I sat between them patting, shushing and singing until they exhausted themselves to sleep. But, they would usually then sleep until at least midnight. Dd is up to party all night long!
I don't like spending nights in there, i don't like sleeping in a seperate bed to dp... But I can't see any other way

I am pretty much permanently in DS2's room, sometimes he's in the cot (ha, rarely these days!) and sometimes in bed with me. If I bed share he tends to settle a bit more without a feed but in the cot he wakes every 2 hours and won't settle without it. It's not ideal but it'll have to do for now. There's no way I'm going to spend hours shushing and patting a crying baby, it nearly drove me to to the edge with DS1 because it never seemed to work for me.

Here's my vent for the night: 'drowsy but awake' is a load of horsesh!t! IF I can get my baby into the cot drowsy without him screaming, he just ends up rolling around and chatting to himself until he is wired and overtired and crying his head off so I have to feed him all the way to sleep....!! Grrr!
