Today has been one of those days were I feel my blood pressure is not only elevated but I feel edgy and a bit shaky. I have been working all morning trying to get the payroll set up for my husband’s company (an accountant I am not) and dealing with some stressful emails from my work. While the boys woke up happy, they have gradually become tired, cranky and miserable.
Last night the boys both woke up twice, once slept with my husband and I, and the other was able to go to sleep in their crib. Today, at nap time, they refused to nap. There was crying, screaming and generally difficult behaviour. I am tired, feeling defeated and wish that my boys would just SLEEP.
I know they would be happier, and I would too.
So, I did it. I contacted a sleep professional and am waiting to see what “package” they suggest for us – email or phone.
I hope beyond all hopes that this works.
Still Sleepless in Twinville

this sounds so like my grandson – I have now sent these links to my daughter in Australia. I think the main problem is that she just won’t let him cry. She’s even been to a sleep clinic with him there a couple of times where it has helped but once he’s home he has the trousers on! Hubby would let him cry more but not my daughter. Hopefully this might help her as her second is due soon.
