For a while now, we have been doing awesome with sleeping through the night, all 3 kids! Suddenly, all 3 seem to be taking turns not wanting to sleep and Michael is turning into a crazy man when it comes to going to sleep. As I write, he is in his room screaming at his door even though a month ago he was going to bed and falling asleep almost immediately. The twins seem to be going to sleep ok, they do a little bit of crying before falling asleep, but after just a short time they are asleep. Eva Rose definitely wakes up more than Thomas. Part of the problem with her is that she need a diaper change in the middle of the night and since we have been working so diligently at clearing up horrible diaper rashes on all 3 kids, I will pretty much immediately get up and change their diaper and put them back to bed and usually this works, but it really stinks that I had a short time of sleeping through the night and it is gone! Last night, Thomas woke up and more than likely needed Tylenol since he is teething. I changed is diaper gave him some Tylenol and rocked him and he went back to sleep. Eva Rose just got a molar but I didn't notice much with her teething and sleeping, it seemed more diaper related. Michael is waking up in the middle of the night and I have started bringing him in bed with me and once he is asleep, bringing him back into his bed. This seems to work out better than rocking him in a rocking chair since as soon as I stand up he is awake and screaming again. At least I seem to get a little better sleep this way. I'm not sure if this is just a phase that we have to ride out or if I have to do something different. Michael is in a toddler bed and initially this seemed a positive move. I still think that it was good to put him in a bed vs a crib, but I just wish he would go back to those good nights of sleeping. I definitely got spoiled!
Let's hope that this is just a phase and I will be sleeping again soon!
