So easy child has decided sleep is no fun unless she is in my arms. difficult child is still having sleep issues and I get about an hour of sleep a night when easy child wont sleep. Im hoping someone has some advice. easy child is 8 months old, strictly breastfed (dont suggest a bottle unless you want to come to my house and hear the screaming lol), healthy weight and otherwise a happy baby. Typical night consists of a rock solid routine with dinner by 5:30, bath after for both difficult child and easy child together (their favorite time of the day), difficult child's medications at 7, difficult child in bed by 7:30. easy child and I then begin our evening nursing and she falls asleep in my arms. I attempt to lay her down and screaming begins. I can continue this routine till up to 1am. Ive tried walking, rocking, letting her cry for periods 5-15 minutes then rocking, it always ends in nursing which is the only thing that calms her down. Once she's nursed she either falls asleep again only to wake up when I put her down or wakes up and wants to play. Nap schedule during the day seems to change nothing, 0,1 or 2 naps it doesnt matter, she wont sleep. Everyone without a difficult child says to take her to bed with me but they don't understand that when difficult child sleeps from 8-1 or 2 in the morning is the only time I can do housework. My mother suggested that I let easy child cry it out completely for 2-3 nights and see if it makes a difference. She said it worked when she did it with me. Nothing else seems to be working and just letting her stay up and play doesnt work because she has to be playing with me, usually in my lap which solves nothing. Im desperate, does anyone have any suggestions?
