I am a single mom of a 13 month old and 3.5 yr old. My 13 month old has to be held constantly and he won't go to sleep unless I nurse him. He wakes up on an average of 5 times a night. He has epi pens and is extremely allergic to dairy and peanuts so I have to watch my 3,yr old like a hawk if he has cheese or something. We are a peanut free house. My 3 year old always needs to be entertained and is so loud. I can barely make dinner without my baby pulling at my leg crying for me to pick him up. He can't self sooth and I mean I try to put him in his crib with a sippy and his stuffed puppy and blanky and even if I rub his back he screams so loud and doesn't stop. Both my kids got the noroviruis from the daycare center and I've been up for the last week with them puking, having diarrhea, crying and I had to take a week off work. Again I'm a single mom and have no vacation or sick time s my paycheck is going to be bad. I'm crying right now because I'm so worn down and exhausted and wish I could get sleep at night or my baby could self sooth. I just needed to vent and I have the worst headache ever.
