My husband is in the National Guard. In June he finished his training that was full time for 2 yrs. He has been working when there is training for him to do. So his time at home is all over the place. Week or more gone, home for a couple days or longer. Recently our almost 2yr old has been having problems sleeping. He has never slept well, but the last few night he has been up screaming more than 5x. Yesterday he had a lot of accidents and today a couple already. I didn't put 2 and 2 together until someone said, maybe with his dad coming and going inconsistently that is what is bothering him and causing these behaviors. He doesn't understand what it means when I say "Daddy's working, he'll be him in a few days" after he walks around asking "Where's Daddy". Life is pretty structured other than this HUGE factor. Any suggestions on how to help my little one cope?
