This is what I get for bragging! The past week Dylan has been up at LEAST 2 times! It's driving me bonkers, she seems perfectly happy and as far as I can tell, no teething! She will scream until either DW or I goes in and then she will just giggle away and want to play until we can finally get her back to sleep. I can't bear to CIO, but I am at my wits end! Any advice?!

We have been going through this for the past month. He has been hungry most of the time and there have been a couple of nights where he just wants to play. I have been working on upping his solids so that he won't be so hungry. We are going to the ped this week, so I am going to ask him about it.

Someone said that if they are learning something new, they will struggle to sleep all night. I know that when Parker was becoming mobile, he struggled to sleep through the night.

It is frustrating! Hang in there!

The only thing I know to do is keep her active really close to bedtime, that way she is super tired when it comes time to sleeping. That generally works well with Sabrina. We will go outside and hang out for a while until she is tired and ready for bed.

I wish I had advice, but we've been on a run for about the last two weeks of Emily waking up in the middle of the night (between 12 and 2am) and not going back to sleep for 2-4 hours. It's killing me. Have you checked for teeth? Em is getting one on the top and the first night after I figured that out, I gave her tylenol before bed and it was the only night she slept through. I've continued to give it before bed, but she still wants to wake up in part mode. She doesn't want a bottle, she doesn't need to be changed, she just wants to play. I keep the lights off and just rock her so that she doesn't get stimulation but it takes forever to get her back to sleep and the moment I go to put her in the crib, she is wide awake again. The only way I can get her back to sleep is to wait for her to tire herself out in the crib and it is at least a 2-3 hour process when that happens...

Are you still working? I don't know how I would work with this pregnancy, but then to be up with Em in the middle of the night? I'd be a walking basket case by now... You have my deepest sympathies!
