HELP ! My boys won't sleep.
It's been a week and we are all VERY TIRED.
(head bangs on keyboard, asldfkj.......agpao;eh........gwp'ejwlkj)
At 6 months we put them in their cribs because they were getting too big and moving around too much for any of us to sleep good together.
They took to their beds quickly.....the transition was almost TOO smooth.
I, I, I....I just want to sleeeeeeep. My eyes are dry and red and when I blink they seem to stick shut. My head feels heavy and is a little spinny. aaaaaaaaaaahh aaaaaaaaaaaahh haaaaaaaa.
There has to be medication that you can give them. Something that can safely knock them out for at LEAST 6 hours.
Why hasn't somebody marketed this. This has got to be the hottest commodity out there. A solution for sleep deprivation and colic is what they need to focus on. They have medication for restless freaking leg syndrome for hell sakes...but they can't come up with something to knock children out. Safely of course.
Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now....oh sure, that is something to consider curing, THIS is BIGGER than even incontinence.
I am not the mom that lets her kids cry themselves to sleep. It's a personal decision and I've chosen to rock and hold mine. I normally have no problems with this decision.....up to now. At this point I would TOTALLY let them cry it out. Guess what....with twins or with more than one kid, you can NOT. If one wakes up and cries for more than a few minutes, then THEY ALL WAKE UP ! And then you have 3 screaming kids and 2 exhausted and tired mommies. Who are already sleep deprived and on the edge, ready to put 2 screaming babies in the garage.
This is where I would discuss drinking during the day. However, if I had a drink right now (as it's happy hour somewhere) I would pass the f*&% out.
