Ugh... now it’s my turn!
UPDATE: Input her down in her bouncer, and she conked out! I had tried it a couple times earlier in the night, but for some reason it worked this time. Who knows what made the difference... all I know is that she is sleeping! (Yes, I know I’m a terrible parent for letting her sleep in a bouncer. Move along, trolls.)
My 8 week old is REFUSING to sleep. She had a crappy night sleep last night, and has only slept 9 hrs all day today, and it’s 9 pm! Literally nothing has worked: not swaddling, rocking, feeding, leaving her alone for a few minutes, shushing, holding, etc. She doesn’t have a fever, and she will calm down long enough to fall asleep, but then wakes herself back up.
I know it’s probably just a phase, but this is just the worst. I feel terrible for her, because she’s so upset from being overtired. I’m exhausted and frustrated. I feel badly for my husband, who just took her so I can sleep, and meanwhile she’s screaming bloody murder.
This whole being a Mom thing is hard work.
