This is the 3rd night in a row Gus has woken around 1-2 am and been unable to relax and go back to sleep until dawn. I am exhausted! I still have the baby waking 2 times a night as well. I have a friend who works with autistic kids looking into sleep solutions for me. Time to take Gus to see the ped about it. Maybe I can learn some massage techniques - I think that might help if he would let me. Tonight he is being very resistant to touch He is flipping around on the couch right now. If I try to put him back in his bed he screams, and his sibs need to sleep they have school tomorrow. But what about me? Groan.....

I completely understand. On top of the autism my dd also has the visual impairment, so her sleep schedule is constently screwed up. We go for about anywhere from 3-5 nights with her waking up around 2-3 and never going back to bed, to a few nights of sleeping until 5, one good night of sleep, and then the whole cycle repeats itself. Most nights, she will usually play quietly in her bedroom, but she's not potty trained, so I am constantly checking her diaper to make sure she doesn't leak all over the bed, and then she gets mad because mommy came in and she wants to play.
GROAN. I feel ya there.

My dd never had the sleep issues except when she was having seizures. After surgery and no more seizures, she slept great and still does for the most part. Its my neurotypical kids that don't sleep well. Ds is 6 and he's in our room once a night most nights and my 2 yr. old wakes up screaming once every night. If you get any good tips that work, please share them
