Last night I had one of those nights where I just needed to either cry, scream or give up and run. Max has had an ear infection and of course, teething and of course, a cold and of course a stuffy nose..so what does that leave a momma with-NO SLEEP. I AM RUN DOWN, TIRED AND A LITTLE NUTTY. When I get tired, I start to think that every other baby in the world sleeps and then I think that every other mom in the world never has any problems getting their kid to sleep. Max is a great kid. He is one of the happiest and most chill babies that I have ever met but he is not the greatest night sleeper. I go back and forth-in my bed and not in my bed. My kid just does not want to be alone when he is in pain and ya know-I wouldn’t either but I also know that he needs to sleep on his own. The only thing that worked was when I phased him into my version of sleep training but he has had an ear infection for a few weeks and so that is not possible. I am not risking his ears or his emotional state. So he has not been able to get comfortable and he tries and tries and then he is awake. WIDE AWAKE!! Last night, after wanting to scream and throw stuff against the wall and a few times of counting from 1 to 10, well I picked up my little (after an hour of trying to get him to sleep) and we watched a movie together. My hubby was out with friends. It was nice. Max and I watched The Holiday (great feel good movie). He was sleepy. He laid his head on my lap and drank a bottle and watched the movie. An hour later he laid his head down on the floor and went to sleep. I moved him to the over sized chair and looked at my little angel sleeping. AAAHHH!!!I start to feel like a nut for complaining about sleep when he is such a good kid but sleep is huge for my mental well being. I know you guys always remind me that I am not alone but it is so easy to forget all the posts I read on mommies struggling with sleep.So who knows what is going on with my kid and his sleep habits. Poor baby but poor mama! Sorry for the blah, blah, blah but this momma needs a break.
