I am still here, and still exhausted. It is official, I have the worst sleeper of all the mommy’s in my little mommy mafia. Sabine turned 5 months last week and with it came ZERO sleep improvement, but lots of adorable new milestones. Cuteness aside, I’m beat and starting to wonder how I can possibly start school if she is still sleeping this poorly come January 18. We head to Alabama for Christmas next week so sleep training now would be pointless. I am also just not convinced that Cry It Out (CIO) is right for my kid. I am vowing to do something January 1, though. She will be six months then and if we are still waking multiple times a night, not napping during the day and being UP for the day at 3:30 a.m. I will call in a specialist. I don’t care how much it costs, something has to give. I can no longer function on 3-5 hours of sleep a night.
I am hoping writing this here will help hold me accountable. And now Sabine has woken from her… lets see… 7 minute nap at 5:30 in the morning. Must go fetch her again. Encouragement is very much appreciated, horror stories are not welcome.
