Last night my son (10 months) would not go to sleep after waking up at 1 am. I tried everything, it had been an hour and a half. Every time I got him to sleep he'd wake himself up, sit up, and start crawling for the edge of the crib so he could stand up and cry. I was at my wits end so.... I climbed into his crib and laid down in there with him! I was really strange to lay in a crib as an adult. Anyway, it didn't work and I finally ended up bringing him into my own bed which meant that I had a lousy nights sleep because I am always half awake when he's in there with me. I am so nervous that something will happen to him!
So, your turn. What is your crazy act of desperation? (successful or otherwise!)

When DD was an infant she had colic and the only way she would sleep is if we put her in her baby bjorn and walked. If we took her out and put her in her crib she would wake up. One night out of desperation because of very little sleep from previous nights of sleep deprivation we decided once DD fell asleep to slip off the baby bjorn from Dh and attach it to the clothes bar in the closest in our bedroom. We got her hanging in the closest saw the error of our way and busted out laughing she woke up. If CPS found out we did that they probably would have taken her away. We still think it's funny.
