I had a really hard time with this idea. Like most moms, I already feel like I don’t spend enough time with my son, and now bedtime has to be a strict regime of crying and timed-condolences.
We intended to start the sleep training but first we needed to move him to his own nursery; as opposed to our room. We decided to come when he cried for the first few nights and then start the sleep training.
He did super the first 3 nights but then he got a virus with a high temp and needed us every second.
Last night, for the third night in a row, I got 3 hours of sleep. Work has been super busy, and while Miles seems to be on the mend, I have a touch of the virus, and Lance is sick as a dog.
As I am typing this post, I’m sitting on the edge of my bed pumping since little guy isn’t eating enough while Lance is in bed downstairs with 103 temp, and I’m hoping this virus doesn’t affect me the same way.
Miles is whimpering, chattering, and yelling in his nursery, and all I can think is how convenient it would be if we had already done the sleep training and I had mastered the “Cry It Out” phase.
Such is life!
