I am so sick of reading articles about babies and children not sleeping; but at the same my kids won’t sleep so I end up reading them over and over again.
Teething and/or illness?
Is their room in appropriate lighting?
Oh you mean the spotlight I have shinning in their faces? Totally.
Have you tried music?
Dear God, yes. And Ocean sounds. And rain sounds.
Have you tried oils?
Only like 19 of them but if you have more let me know.
Are you soothing too much?
Well, there’s two. So crying it out isn’t an option since they’re both loud enough to wake the neighbors, let alone each other.
Be stern. Tell them it’s bedtime and leave. Then come back in five minutes and blah blah blah…nothing works.
So upon my stumble I found this. Not so much advice, but at least I know it’s not just me.
Just wanted to share the article because it made me feel better, might help other parents struggling with sleep deprivation.
