more and more sleep issues
Hey ladies, it is 2 AM and I am up watching the goodnight show on sprout with my girls. I am such a bad mommy. The last 3 nights the girls have been waking my in the middle of the night. I do my best to get them the paci and put them back down immediately. But it doesn't seem to be working. DH works till midnight, and although he gets up to help - I try to send him back to bed so he can at least get a few hours of sleep. BUt that leaves me dealing with two wide awake babies who won't go back down - and start screaming if I leave them in their cribs. Then, it is just crazy, because neither one can fall back asleep because the other is keeping them awake.
And this is where I start major major bad habits. I don't know what else to do besides get them up and let them play till they are exausted. I keep it dark, turn on a slow TV show or music and let them play till I put them down.
While contemplating what has changed this week:
I have been feeding them rice cereal about an hour before bedtime. I don't think I am going to do that anymore. Maybe it is cause digestive issues????
Teething has been runing rampant. Olivia had a tooth break through today.
Can't think of anything else. Has anyone been though this and lived? LOL Am I teaching my girls habits that are irreversible? What shoudl I do, suggestions please!!!!
Thanks for your help ladies... I love this board!!
