sleep

enough is enough it's time for Adam to start sleeping on his own and for more than 20min

today 2.5hrs of crying (with me right there, I barely left him alone) I ended up feeding him b/c I was starting to think he was getting hungry it'd been so long. Finally asleep and 20min later he is up again.
He's so tired.....I don't want to give in to him and let him sleep in my arms. So hard

Could it be from teething? Desmond does this when he has teeth about to cut through. He usually will wake up every 30 minutes at night unless I give him gel on his gums. It's sad!

Hopefully he starts sleeping again.

he is teething but this is 20min cycle is normal for him....unless all snuggled in with me he'll wake up .
I was debating continuing because I could see new tooth cutting but he doesn't seem in pain from it.....if he's sitting with me he's fine only cry when I put him down so it seems his cry is a pissed off one.

today he has yet to sleep (except for the walk to drop off ds1 at school). we tried for almost 2hrs and then I gave up and let him play. Now he's starting to get tired again but I think when I go to put him in crib he'll hold out for another hr when it's school pick up time.
ds1 was the same way (20min sleep cycle and then awake) but holy crap Adam is much more stubborn at this sleep alone thing

Man. I know Des gets that stubbornness when he thinks he needs to always be held. I just put him down and go about my business. He screams and crawls after me while crying and it's really sad, but I have to get things done haha.

Eventually he goes off and plays though.

Stinks that he and DS1 both did/do that!
