At my wit’s end

Oh, Gavin. You are lucky you’re cute. 😛

Here’s the deal: this kid will. not. sleep. He’s never been a good sleeper, but this week it’s escalated into screaming for hours on end before naptime and bedtime. The past few nights we’ve put him down around 8:30 and he screamed until past 10. Even Benadryl hasn’t helped (yes, we’ll try anything at this point). He’s trying every ploy he can think of to get out of bed – I need hugs, I’m scared, I have to go potty, etc. If we get him out of his crib and rock him he’ll calm down and sometimes go to sleep, but the second we put him back in he starts freaking out again. I’m not sure there’s anything left to do other than let him cry (though I will still get him when he has to go potty), but I’m open to suggestions. Help me!! We NEED him to get over this before we leave for vacation in a week!

    Not that it’s any consolation but I am going through the same thing with Kira. It used to be that books would get her tired enough to sleep but now…it no longer works. Natalia
