I will be honest with you up until the past month I have had it pretty easy. We were living in a new born bubble and I felt good, my baby boy was perfect and my family was complete. The present is a completely different situation, Milo does not sleep. EVER.
I used to feed him to sleep and I was okay with that but it just stopped working and now he wakes every half an hour just to have a little moan that he is tired and fanny around for a while then he goes back for his half an hour of sleep. I am exhausted. I am defeated. I am hanging on for dear life. While Ash was away I tried to do some sleep training and he fought it. Man did he fight it, i tried to get him to sleep at 7pm and he finally went down at 1am for just under 3 hours. How can a baby go that long without sleeps? He only naps for just over an hour during the day that is in the car or the pram he still wakes up after 30 minutes.
I am all out of ideas or solutions, Ash tries to help in the night but Milo just wants me. What am I supposed to do when I am so close to snapping at 3am and I cant go anywhere, I can’t cool off and I can’t calm down? I love him don’t get me wrong, I love him more than anything in the whole world but I NEED SLEEP! I go back to uni next month and I am freaking the fuck out. How will i ever get any assignments or housework done when he will only sleep on me and I can’t put him down during the day? How will my brain function on broken sleep night after night, year after year.
God I hope everyone is right when they say there is a light at the end of he tunnel.
