I'm trying to sleep train Namraj this week. We set up a little mattress with a mosquito net in the room that attaches to mine but bedtime has NOT been a pretty scene. I know it's time for him to start sleeping in his own bed or at least with one of his brothers but so far just about every night he's crawled back into bed with me and at some point I always give in. It hasn't helped that he's been running a fever and a little under the weather but I need to get a little tougher– his and my sleep depends on it!
It's so hard to hear him screaming at the top of his lungs for me and seeing him so upset. The funny thing is he was totally fine while I was away for a month. But when I'm here he cries like I'm abandoning him forever and I can't take it so I think to myself "okay fine, just this one more night" but then one more night turns into one more week and then another and here we are. I also feel like since I'm working and running around all day, nights and mornings snuggling in bed is our bonding time but I'm definitely guilty of giving in to whining and crying a little more than I should. I totally understand why there are so many parenting books out there! This stuff is hard!!!
