So, sleep training was a FAIL. We plan to try again this Friday.
The night has been going like this:
7:00 pm Put Henry to bed
10:30 pm Henry wakes up and sleeps beside me in my bed…
The rest of the night is restless. Henry wiggles his little body while I rest my drowzy head on my arm, my neck aching from the strain. Every few hours I feed him when he starts to cry. I know I must sleep at some point because I am startled awake several times during the night with the fear that I’ve steamrolled him.
7:00 am We wake up. I see my smiling happy, “morning-person” baby. Somehow, this little grin, gives me the energy to get through the day.
Tomorrow night, I swear, will be the last night of this sleepless insanity.
