I cannot begin to tell you how thrilled I am to write this post.
Over the past few weeks (ever since we moved, really), my little guy has been a little toot. He refuses to sleep well at night and instead wakes EVERYONE up with his screaming and HUGE fits. He’ll be 2 at the end of the month, so I imagine he’s just brushing up on his Terrible Two skills to get a head start.
If you are friends with me on Facebook, you’ll recall seeing these types of pictures of my little guy:
Gee, he seems to really have a sleep problem, right? Well, he really does. His problem is that he’s a little TOO good at daytime napping and REALLY bad at nighttime sleeping.
I’ve been trying to night wean him for the past week or so and it’s gone horribly! He likes to wake up no less than 3 times to scream, demand milk, hit and kick and sit up when I say no (but I’m trying to snuggle him anyway – boy, he gets TICKED!).
Last night, this child went to bed (and I mean CONKED OUT) before 9pm. The best part? He didn’t wake up until 7:45 this morning! OH MY GOODNESS! A break for mom! Rest for my guy! No one else had to wake up to shrill shrieks ALL night long!!
I just may be the happiest woman alive today. I just hope we can repeat this performance again tonight. I’m sure it won’t be smooth sailing, but at least 2 or 3 nights a week of uninterrupted sleep would be heavenly!!
