I'm Tired

I am so completely fucking tired.  Man kids are awesome, but right about now I'm questioning my damn sanity for having another one, especially one who is as tricky as Arya.  A wee little baby who decided to be an A+ sleeper for close to three months and then BAM sucksville.  For real, that baby was sleeping through the night some nights and only waking up once on the others...now, we're up 2-3 times a night every night.  Some times she goes right back down and other times she's up for an hour.

The decision to have another one probably went a lot like this.  "Oh hey Andy, we've been having good solid sleep for about 3 and a half years or so, and just the past year and a half Isabella has decided to sleep in until like 8:30, so lets give all of that good solid sleep up for a year ok?"

I know it's just the four month sleep regression and I know I can fix it, but I was so hoping to avoid sleep training.  I don't know if I have it in my to do cry it out again.  I really don't.  I'm giving her until 6 months before I make any rash decisions about sleeping.  But until then I'm totally fucking tired.  Anyone else tired?


Between the hours of 7am and 8pm I find her to be just perfect.

Oh shame you poor woman! Good luck, I hope she finds her sleeping rhythm back!

Aww! For what it's worth, I went through pretty much the exact same mental progression with Adrianna. First three months? Amazing. Then all hell broke loose and I was up 3, 4, sometimes 7 or 8 times a night. Until she was about 11 months (because I couldn't bear to sleep train.)

Finally, I went away for a weekend, weaned, and let Chris sleep train her. Ta-da! Baby went back to either sleeping through or only getting up once a night.

Sleep is glorious. I hope you get it back soon.

Alec is 11 months old and wakes up 2-3 times a night. My husband bitches, but yet he's not the one getting up with him most of the time...

I'll spare you the rant, but I'm also fucking tired.

I feel for you - I really do! And today I'm also really fucking tired because my 4 year-old twins are BOTH sick with fevers and I've been up for 2 nights now. Kill me. I hope it starts getting better for BOTH of us very soon.

I'm in the same boat as you. My 20-month-old keeps me insanely busy and now we are adding another in just six weeks?!?! If you hear the looney bin truck rolling on by, it's coming to pick me up. ;-)

Landon didn't sleep through the night until 11 months old when a magic switch went off and he's been a champion sleeper ever since. The first year just sucks balls. Period. But soon enough it'll just be a distant memory. Hang in there momma.

Oh, I remember those days! And I hated sleep training. All I can say is hang in there - mine are now 11, 8, & 6 and I'm still tired, but at least they sleep through the night! :-)

I feel you sister!! I am past the baby stage, but I have an insomniac unemployed husband and an insomniac depressed son. I am working two jobs and there is never enough sleep!!
