There was a point in time where Addison, and her siblings actually slept through the night. Key words in that sentence being “a” and “point in time” because she no longer does it.
She is averaging about a span of 4 hours twice a night. Meaning She is going to bed around 10pm with me, and rise and shine… she is up and ready to eat and play around 2am.
A point in time where Mommy wants to roll over and go back to bed, not play games trying to get this nugget back to sleep.
But a couple nights ago, just as I was falling back asleep, I had another child wake me up because at 3am it became a dire emergency to cry at my bedroom door and have me escort him to pee. This was also a first.
The next morning I was talking to my mother about it all and I think I have come to the realization that I will not actually sleep through the night again until one of two things happen.
- My husband decides to get up with the kids in the middle of the night. – Which isn’t going to happen because he could sleep through a tornado, and can’t breastfeed Addie.
- The kids move out and go to college – And even then I don’t see me being at peace enough to sleep good!
Have you had to deal with your baby regressing when it comes to sleep? I mean, I was praying by six months old she would be sleeping through the night on her own and here I am begging for her to sleep at night…
