Sleep update

It’s starting to get a little better. Monday night he only screamed for 20 minutes though it felt like much, much longer. Tuesday for nap it was only 15 minutes, and last night he fussed for amaybe a minute when we put him down, then another minute when Genevieve woke him up later on. He also slept through the night!

We leave for vacation on Saturday and will be sharing a room with both kids for 8 days…everyone cross your fingers!

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!

Fears – again, some more.

7. garbage trucks
8. the coffee grinder
9. thunder and lightning

10. helicopters
11. planes
12. motorcycles

….let’s just say ‘anything that makes noise’ and call it a day.

PS – if anyone has some tips on how to convince Gavin that these things will not get him/hurt him so we can start sleeping again, let me know. I’m all out.
