Nothing good happens before 6am
I haven’t written in a bit because when I’m tired, my brain doesn’t work.
Will WAS sleeping 7pm-7am or at least 7pm-630am for a while. Then a few weeks ago he started getting up at 5am! Sometimes 4:45! Why do bad things happen to good people?
He did have an ear infection about 2 weeks ago and his sleep was obviously a mess. He was in pain and had a fever, it was so sad.
I brought it up to my Facebook mommy group and someone suggested we put him to bed earlier and maybe he will sleep later. This doesn't logically make sense but babies are weird. He was going to bed at 7pm, what a fun guy. I put him to bed 6:30 the past few nights. He did sleep later the first night we tried this! Can I go to bed at 6:30pm? Why is that not acceptable?
Two nights ago he was up all night. Praying for a tooth and hoping that his ear infection isn’t back! We were supposed to be going away this weekend, however I can’t be trapped in a hotel room with a crying baby.That doesn’t seem like much of a vacation to me. Being tired makes me mean! I'm not a good sleeper to begin with.
When he wakes up early I let him cry for awhile. Then after a bottle I try to put him back down. Sometimes he only goes back for 30 minutes and sometimes not at all. Then he is exhausted by nap time (2.5-3 hours after he wakes up). This morning he hung out in his crib from 5:15 to 6 and he didn’t really have a nervous breakdown. Such an accomplishment.
I hope whatever is bothering him is resolved soon. Love that little guy even through all of my yawns. I need to get better at being tired.
