I've mentioned multiple times that Drew hates me with his sleeping habits! AHHHH...This baby. He's the sweetest little man, so happy, so perfect....but his sleeping, ugh. Granted the poor baby does have issues....he has had eczema on his entire body since he was 12 weeks old. It's under control now, but he does itch....and the damn mail order pharmacy that we had to switch to (stupid insurance wants everything mail order, if it's a script that you get over and over) hasn't come in....so he hasn't had his antihistamine since dec. 18! (Stuff that helps him, not itch so much) I don't really notice him scratching...but I think that stuff just helps calm him for bedtime. And, then there is his ear issues. He had tubes put in his ears on Dec. 20....yeah he's already had an ear infection since then, and I think he still does. So probably a trip to the ENT tomorrow. So.....I can't really blame him for not sleeping. He's got so much going on. :(
But.....I cannot continue to wake up with him every hour and a half! I'm beat! I'm mean, and I'm ohhhh so tired of it! While sitting in his room at night rocking him...I think of all the people who are sleeping, and their babies are sleeping all night....and I seriously get pissed off! I'm to the point that I just can't take it anymore. He'll be 10 months old on the 17, and I have not slept since this child was born!!!!! It makes my hubs and I fight in the middle of the night because we are both tired....and if we let Drew "cry it out" he then wakes up his brother in the next room, and then we have 2 awake...which is what happened last night!
I don't know what else to do. We have tried EVERYTHING. I feed him more, I make him warm enough....I just don't know. I'm so defeated, and over it!
During the week while we are in my daycare, Drew puts himself to sleep for naps with a bottle...but at bedtime, he falls asleep with us holding him with a bottle....we put him in his crib and he's fine...but when he wakes up, we hold him to feed him. I'm thinking of being a really terrible parent, and just throwing the kid and a bottle and going back to bed! lol. I CANNOT continue like this! AHHHH!!! HELP!
Ok, now a WW update:
I did freaking awesome this weekend if I do say so myself. I was worried about the weekend...because there is more temptation, than there is in my little daycare all week long, with no "outside food" but I did well. I ate what everyone else ate....just less of it....and didn't binge on junk in between! I'm pretty proud of myself, and that's a good feeling! One I haven't had in a really long time! Feels good!
Now if only I could get my kid to sleep at night......I would be "super mom" lol. Happy Monday friends!
