She has been fighting sleep for a while. She just fusses even though she is exhausted and just fights sleep for an hour or so before she is finally out. She also shakes her head like she is saying no, but does it so hard she pitches her body side to side and kicks her legs really hard. She is so exhausted and not even white noise works or even putting her in her swing. She relaxes a little bit but then is wide awake and pitching a fit again. Lights on or out tv on or off, no difference. I'm so tired. She especially started doing this when she got her helmet. Part of me, the exhausted part of me, wishes I never started this process with her. Then I feel guilty thinking that. I'm going to let her CIO tonight for a few minutes in her crib and just see if that will get her to soothe herself. I don't know what else to do. My ears are ringing and my head hurts. I feel guilty for this, too.

You shouldn't feel guilty at all, you have to do what you have to do. Gabby fights her sleep too and has since she was born. I hate letting her CIO but sometimes I have no choice because nothing I do works. She will fuss, cry, and roll around in her bed for over an hour sometimes. I never let her cry for long, but there are times I just can't get anything else to work and I get so tired and frustrated. I hope things get better for you and Lily
