I feel like we are everything that’s wrong and failed in this miserably.
my 13months old is used to us holding him and rocking him to sleep. We tried putting him down a wake but that never worked and since we’re always in a rush for him to sleep to get back to our work or our sleep that we never had the patient to wait for him to fall sleep and never had the heart for him to cry to sleep. Lately he has been down with a cold and not only his bedtime changed from 7 to god knows when, he also wakes up multiple times in the middle of night and sometimes every in my arms it takes him at least 1.5hrs to sleep.
before he used to sleep all the way till morning without waking up.
I really need help. I can’t function anymore. My husband and I are also down with the cold and this is so frustrating.
