I am exhausted. Truly. Henry is still not sleeping through the night. He wakes up one to three times every night. Honestly, it feels like winning the grand prize if it is just once. We have tried everything except letting him cry for hours. We give him time, and sometimes it works, but that doesn't change the fact that we are awake. Laying in our room listening to him fuss in his room. Waiting and holding our breaths that he will go back to sleep. Sometimes I think the nights I get up and nurse him are easier than that. At least he goes back to sleep easy when I nurse him. Back to sleep for the night, or for a few hours. No way to know.
We have been bringing him back to bed with us on the really bad nights, and then he will sleep easy. I just don't know that we want to start always letting him sleep with us. I am tempted to join the co-sleeping camp and call it quits. We are just so...tired. Exhausted. Beat. But, he sleeps so well in his bed sometimes. It doesn't seem like I should change that. His bedtime is way before ours, and I don't want him in our room alone. Plus, he is rolling so much now it doesn't feel safe to have him in our bed without both of us there. The other morning I was in the shower and he managed to get close to the edge in that fifteen minutes. I just don't know.
We have added more food in before bed. We try to let him calm down and not go in his room. We try to avoid nursing in the night and just going in there to sooth him, but leave him in his crib. But then there are the times he gets so worked up. Screaming and getting chocked he is so upset. I just don't understand why he keeps waking up when for so long he slept all night. It is so frustrating. And it is getting so old...
I know I have posted about this before, but it is still happening so we are back here again. When I sat down to post all I could think was, "I am too tired to blog". So...that's where we are. Any advice (Again) is welcome.
