DS, 19months not sleeping

DS is 19 months. He is probably teething. He wakes up crying at least once a night and, like last night, he kept us up most of the night no matter what we did. We are reaching the end of our rope. We don't know what to do. I wanted to do CIO but my husband can't handle it and picks him up every time! We need sleep.

Just a bit of background, he is just walking and we think he is teething. Any suggestions would be great. He is killing us.

  • Sleep? Didn't you know that you sleeping is a violation of the Parenting Contract? **smile**

    Walking and teething will both throw sleep patterns. Check out "The No Cry Sleep Solution" by Elizabeth Pantley. You can find it online.

  • We have tried pain meds and teething meds with little luck. And I will look that book up. THanks!

  • He has tubes so he should be good with ears.
