Seriously I don’t know what to do about Eli’s sleep.
Last night he was up more than 5 times.
I get up as much with him as I do with a newborn.
And I have one of those on the way too.
I feel trapped and I am not sure what to do.
But I can’t keep up with the current schedule. Regan is working in Pincher Creek so he gets home around 630-7pm each night when he’s not on call. And I can’t make Regan get up all the time when he has to commute one hour each way (he is TERRIBLE for falling asleep while driving) and being up for on call and he kind of helps with people’s lives, so he should sort of be alert. 😉
So I have been staying up to hang out with him. Which means bed time at around 11pm. Then Eli is up 4-6 times a night. And up for the day between 5-630am. I am pregnant and taking dicletin (which makes me more sleepy). I feel like a zombie most days. I just don’t know what to do.
I am just at my wit’s end. And I don’t know what to do. He gets up for unknown reasons. Last night one time cause of a bad dream, twice to go pee, and the three other times who knows. He just keeps showing up in our room. I think part of it is that he is a terrible eater and I think he is hungry so he wakes up with a stomach ache. But his eating isn’t getting any better either.
I just don’t know how I will survive having a newborn with this current craziness going on.
