2 and a half year terrible sleeper!!
Hi guys just need some advise, my daughter is 2 and half years old 3 in July and since she was born (6 week preemie) she has never been the best of sleepers she started on occasion to sleep through the night when she was about 18 months -24 months she seemed to go through a good patch maybe 2 weeks of strait sleeping through then regressed back where she would wake up all the time every night again!
Now we have a 5 month old aswel and expected the usual reaction off her to auch a drastic change from being an only child to suddenly having a new baby..she handled it beautifully and after about 2 months was very used to him and he didn't bother at all, but the nights still remain the same!
She goes to sleep fine when going to bed but can wake at silly times 3:00 am sometimes earlier and WILL NOT go back to sleep! Luckily enough my son sleeps through but however he is a bad stirred and will squirm all night sometimes !
She woke up tonight at 11:10pm It's is now 2:00am and she is still awake I have tried the whole suppernanny trick of putting her back in bed, milk, no loud speaking , No lights, comfort teddy and still nothing and because of her kicking off she's disturbed her brother who is now tossing and turning literally every 10 seconds!
My husband works nights which he is on tonight and was last night I am literally at my whits end and feel like I'm going to crack! I wouldn't mind if it was a scary dream or anything like that but it's not she's just awake for awake sake and less to say it's driving me up the wall! I'm so utterly sick of this lack of sleep and sometimes because I'm so tired I get these horrible thoughts like what the hell was I actually thinking having kids!
It's awful sometimes ! If it's not one it's the other! I'm sat here now not slept for 5 nights and I've had enough! I don't know what to do I honestly can't be doing with this anymore! My husband just doesn't get what it's like to do this on my own while he's on nights ! He just gets abit arsey as if to say I've just done a night shift but the difference is is he goes to bed all bloody day I don't!!! I'm up with the kids!
Now I'm not saying for one second my husband does t pull his weight he does in fact he's brilliant but sometimes I wish he would change bloody jobs ! I hate it I really do! My life no consist of me looking like utter utter crap all the time, people asking me if I'm ill all the time and walking around like a zombie I have Terrible black rings around my eyes and bags under my eyes!! As you can tell I'm at breaking point I really am!
