Hello mommies, This is not a toddler problem, but a problem more to do with me. My DS is now 14 mos old. He has never been a great sleeper, and every time he teeths or hits a growth spurt, any sleep routine that I tried to put into place goes for a full toss. In the process, I am going insane..literally. I work from home, have a day time nanny to look after him, and I take care of him during other times. Hubby works long hours, but of late has been putting him to sleep, so I am getting some relief. But DS wakes up often in the night, and is fussy and needs to be rocked, walked and just when you think he is asleep will wake up again and the cycle continues. He has been teething, and I give him homeo for it, which does give his relief. He also has again become very gassy, and it hits only after 11 pm. I assume because he is trying more new foods, so his tummy is getting adjusted to the new things. This causes his sleep to be disturbed, mine and hubbys too. Hubby seems to be able to cope much more easily that I am. I was checked for low iron levels and it turns I do have low iron, hence the fatigue. I am working on getting it up through tabs and diet. I also have recently tried to start yoga again, which I was very very regular with pre pregnancy. Every time a routine gets disrupted, I go crazy, especially in the night, and I keep cribbing and crabbing in the night, and get very angry, which I’m sure is not good for my little one. I feel very guilty in the morning, and resolve that I will not do so again, but the same cycle continues. I used to be able to cope with it very easily before. There was a period between when he was 5 mos to 8 mos where he would not sleep the whole night, and I seemed to have managed perfectly well. Why am I finding this difficult? I am very uptight and am not able to relax, and take it easy, and in the process not able to enjoy my little one. Please help. Any advice, or if any of you has gone through something similar, how did you cope with this? I am trying my best to work my way through this, but the anger and fatigue is now getting old, and I am just at my wits end trying to come with strategies to cope with it. Thank you in advance.
