I can't get the baby to sleep thru the night - (let alone 2 hours straight.) With two naps a day, she can never seem to get to sleep on her own. We've done some sleep training (lettering her cry) a few times now, but then she gets a cold or another tooth and we have to start all over. Every little thing sets her off. She has had one cold after another (I guess due to 2 older school age children) and letting her cry makes her even more congested. I run up and down the stairs many times a day trying to get her to sleep while my 3 yr. old is waiting for me. I'm so tired, feel like things will never get easier and am definitely on the verge of depression, if not there already.
Any tips that moms with more than 1 child have on how to keep up with life (and keep the others sleeping while 1 child is screaming) while I'm feeling so horrible would be GREATLY appreciated. Sorry for rambling. I am DESPARATE!
