One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Not that anyone has really asked lately, but the sleep battle rages on here in the Shipley house.

For every good night we have, we have two or more "bad ones."

On Monday night into Tuesday our Thomas slept like a dream! He woke up once at 4am, got some milk and was back down until 7:30ish. Last night he was up what seemed like ALL night screaming (11pm, 11:45pm, 12:30am, 3:30am).

He will be 14 months Friday. So, I am sure you can imagine my frustration. That is a LONG time to go with little or broken sleep.

I continue to be firm with the one bottle a night. I had hoped to even cut that out but he returned to being up and screaming multiple times again and a bottle was my only chance for a few hours of rest.

The pediatrician didn't exactly give us a wealth of information, so I believe I will have to do some research on my own.

Here's hoping it won't be too much longer and we can all finally get some sleep around here!!
