Sleep...Where-O-Where Did It Go?



We are missing out on the sleep train in a major way in our household. Since about November, D has been waking up sometime between midnight and 2:30 am. I've gotten into a REALLY bad habit of getting out of bed, feeding her a bottle, and falling asleep with her in the recliner. I have made attempts to put her back in her crib, but she wakes up and cries. I think she has made it back into her own bed once or twice.

Like I said...a REALLY bad habit.

I've tried not getting up to feed her...but she screams.

My husband doesn't sleep well with her in our bed...besides, she has her own bed, she should be sleeping in it.

AHHH!! Please, if you have ANY advice, SHARE!

She looks so cute sleeping...I just wish she would do it more!!

I can tell you that it is fairly normal for CP kids to NOT sleep through the night.

Nathan was around 2 when he first slept though, even now that he is 3 he wakes up about 3 nights out of the week.

We used to go feed him, but now we make sure the last meal is large (think cereal in the bottle).

Nathan eats normal food, but we used to poke holes in the nipple and put cereal in there.

If Nathan has a nap, it is usually 10 or so when he goes to bed. If no nap, 8pm - but then he wakes.

Again, it is normal for CP kids to wake up in the night - it might take some time to get D to sleep all night.
