I've been reading some of the success stories and in all honestly, I just want to cry. I feel like we will never be a success story when it comes to sleeping. I am DESPERATE!!! SO DESPERATE for Roman to sleep. He is almost 9 months and I feel like I have a newborn. We tried sleep training and I just can't do it anymore. I am exhausted. It's been 10 night and he still cries and the past few nights he has been awake every 2 hours again.
What do I do with he wakes up so frequently? Just let him cry? And because he wakes up so much, his body is "awake" and he poops. So I change him and now he's really awake and crying for me.
I also feel so bad for him because his crying makes his nose runny, and then he ends up stuffed up. He also insists on sitting up and crying when he's fighting it and eventually falls asleep hunched over in the most awkward, uncomforable looking position.
I don't think the Ferber method is for him. He did have several nights where he slept for 6-7 hours straight though. I don't know.
I'm a full time student and I am up to my neck in school work. I am so exhausted from such horrible sleep that I can hardly focus.
SOMEONE HELP ME!!!!
