Really, Sawyer? Four Wake-Up Calls in One Night?

I think Sawyer is trying to prepare us for how much we'll be up with baby by refusing to sleep through the night. I thought I'd maybe figured it out by deducing he had an ear infection. The night before last at Buck and Lynn's, he did sleep all night, other than being awoken by several middle-of-the-night phone calls. So I was excited for him to come home last night, hoping that the mix of weird-smelling organic ear stuff and tylenol would give us some rest.

Oh, how naive. Instead, he was up at 11pm, 1am, 5am, 6am....and now we're fully up before 7am. AAAAHHHH! Seriously, this is going to make me nuts. The hard thing also is that he can get out of bed now and out of his room, so we have to figure out how to handle it when he comes in our room at 5am (or, like the several nights before, 3am). So if we want to let him cry, he cries and then comes in our room and then we have to get up anyway to return him. I was REALLY hoping that the ear infection was the thing keeping him up, but it's apparent that he's either in a phase, has some other unknown thing going on, or we need to just figure out how to teach him to sleep all night in HIS bed.

Meanwhile, Mommy and Daddy are tired.

  1. Girl, I feel your pain. We went through a period of sleeping great in our own bed all the way through the night, but for the past month or two she DOES NOT SLEEP THROUGH either.

    Let's have a mommy sleep prayer vigil.
