It finally happened, the first day I have been like “FFS kid just sleep already!!”. I’ve doubted every move I’ve made the last few days in regards to Ragamuffin sleeping during the day (or not sleeping as seems to be the case!). Nothing seems to be working, and I seriously cannot continue holding my boy for the entirety of the day, it’s just not practical!
Hubby suggested taking him for a walk in the pram, you know, get some fresh air fir both of us, but I’ve been walking once a day and unfortunately for me my pelvis is starting to play up again, so I need to slow down. So today, a walk has not been the answer! Nor has letting him cry it out, patting him in his cot, shhhhing him, or even laying down with me. His naps are completely up the shitta and today I got to my whits end.
And to make things even better, I just looked down to find him fast asleep, in his bouncer, peacefully snoring…….ten minutes before he is due for a bottle good darn it!!! Don’t worry though, if today is anything to go by it’ll be a micro nap of no more than five minutes. Yep, there you go, he’s awake again!!
What tips/strategies or coping mechanisms do you use to get your young baby to sleep in the day?
