Yup, it's hard. Lilah has been doing well since her tooth came through (I thought it was the 4 month sleep regression, but now I realize she was teething). She's back to up just once a night, but she's up EARLY in the morning which bothers me a lot! Tonight I think we'll try her in her crib if I manage to get her room organized, so our good nights could change quickly to restless bad nights!
Sorry Joy. Can you get a family member to take the kiddos again for one night so you can catch up? I think you did it 2 months ago or something. When you have little ones who don't sleep- you have to take advantage of family help.
Sleep deprivation is the worst type of torture for a reason- hope you get relief SOON!
I was thinking the same thing this weekend as we were moving into our new house - something I plan to NEVER do again. Having kids is amazing but complicating at times, especially when you're tired. Thank god for iced coffee. I know I shouldn't drink it while breastfeeding, but it's that or curl up in a ball and die ;-)
I am sending all of you exhausted mamas the warmest of internet hugs.
Claire is actually sleeping pretty well, but I get up for work at 3 am and find myself waking many times throughout the night to check the monitor and make sure she's ok. I'm guessing I get about 5-6 hours of sleep on average during the work week. As someone who LOVES her sleep and is used to getting 8 to 9 every night, this is a big adjustment.
