I cannot win with baby! I tried waking with Hubby this morning to give me time to get it together before the baby wakes up. And what do I do? I wake the baby up putting him in the crib. We ended up co-sleeping last night, so I was sort of looking forward to a break from baby. I ended up passing him off to hubby for a while so that I could bathe and eat breakfast. He then feel asleep on my lap for a while. Now Hubby is showering and getting ready to go to work. Hopefully I can make it to the gym before trying to get baby down for a nap. (Trying being the key word. Baby pretty much naps in my lap.)
I think some sleep training is going to be inevitable. The night wakings are driving us both a little crazy, and the napping on my lap has got to stop. Co sleeping works most of the time. The reason I did it last night was because I was just too damn tired to wake up every hour with the baby. I think both Hubby and I are not willing to do CIO. I thought we could look at the No-Cry Sleep Solution. My mother got the No Cry Nap Solution, and I have looked at that. It looks like something we could do. It takes longer than CIO, but I think it could work. I keep hoping this will pass, and the baby will sleep through the night again, but right now it feels like there is no end in sight. All we want is some decent sleep!
I will keep trying with my mornings. Hopefully it will work out soon.
