When will I ever sleep again?
I am running out of ideas. My son just does not want to sleep at night. I have tried letting him cry it out, rocking him to sleep and even bought him a new mattress.
I am a walking zombie. I have read all the articles I can find on this but nothing seems to work. He isn’t teething and doesn’t have gas, so I don’t think he’s in pain. The only thing I can think is that it is separation anxiety. He seems to be fine when I am sitting with him in his room or when he is brought into my bed and snuggles into the crook of my neck.
I am not sure how to handle this. I spend pretty much all my free time with my kids. I do have to work full time so I wonder if that is the reason he is going through it but I have been back to work for seven months now. Should this not have passed by now? He doesn’t cry when I drop him off in the morning so it is not an all day long issue. He naps during the day without needing anyone to hold him. It is only at night that he needs the reassurance.
I would LOVE some help from you. How do I get GM to sleep at night without my being right beside him? I don’t know how much longer I can go without a full night of sleep.
Sorry if this post seems all over the place but the lack of sleep is REALLY starting to get to me. Looking forward to any and all advice.
