sleep, or the lack of December 10, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Danielle Brigance @ 9:35 am

My wonderful little sleeper has turned into quite a nightmare lately! She never naps during the day…but I don’t complain because she sleeps slept so well at night. About a week ago she started waking up at 11, after going to bed at 8:30. Jacob would get up and hold her for a while until she fell back asleep. It was annoying…but nothing like what we’re going through now. She gets a bath and bottle at 8 every night, with Bedtime Bath. Where she used to fall asleep at 8:30 and stay asleep, she has started considering 8:30-9:00 a nap. She literally wakes up wide awake and ready to play. I’m not down with this at all! It will take me at least an hour to fall asleep after she goes to bed. So, her staying up until 11 is killing me! I don’t know what has changed that is making her do this…but it’s got to stop! Because it’s not like she sleeps in any later in the morning! She will go to bed 3 hours later and still wake up at the same time in the morning…what’s up with that? Cry it out has never really worked for us because Lexi will get so worked up with her screaming and crying that she will choke herself. And I hate to sit in here and listen to her cry….but she seriously needs to learn that bedtime is bedtime! Someone help me!
