Well it is too often these days at my house.
Seems like just the other day my husband & I were discussing HOW different 2 kids from the same mom & dad can be.......OURS??? You could lay T down to sleep he would cry then sleep all night. You lay C down don't hear a peep then all the sudden this blood curdling scream in the middle of the night- the kind that makes you jump 5 feet off your bed!!
When T was little he would sleep 14 hour nights!! I thought those people who told me.." get plenty of rest now, when the baby gets here you won't get any!" They knew nothing.
Then C came along!!! HELLO to NO sleep!! He would sleep maybe 4 hours at the most the first year of his life. Then all the sudden when he was 16 months old he started sleeping all night!! Whoo Hoo!! I thought this was great....then I could not sleep or if I got more than 4-5 hours I was too tired??
My sleeping is so messed up now. Luckily, C has got me straightened back out.....because he once again is not sleeping??? He is up at 12 & 5 or 1 & 6. When we went for his 15 month check-up I got the whole " he really needs to be off the bottle by now." talk. I agree I had T off by one. But, just when he started to sleep all night- Heck NO Man- I ain't changin' nothin'!!!
Plus, You come and tell this red headed kid at night time he can't have his bottle-we'll see who wins??
He had a ear infection last week. I am sure that is why he got started back- plus he has gotten 2 new teeth in the last few days. He has in fact given up on the passy on his own!!! Praise the Lord!! Nothing like seeing a kid going to Kindergarten with at passy, although C might still be on the bottle??
Any advice for getting off the bottle this late in the game?? Or getting him to sleep??
