Isaac doesn't take long naps. Or sleep for long stretches at night. That's what's going on right now. I guess I was under the impression that babies started sleeping long as they got older, but that's not the case with my son. For awhile there he was sleeping 4-6 hour stretches when we first put him down at night. But now, it's 3 hours (if I'm lucky) and then almost every hour after that throughout the night. A few nights of this doesn't bother me that much, I am tired but I feel like I can deal with it. But after 2 weeks of this, I'm starting to lose my mind.
I'm not a fan of the "cry-it-out" method. For some reason the thought of that almost brings me to tears. I can't stand to see Isaac cry...especially the desperate kind of crying. I'm looking into the no-tears method of sleep training. I wish I didn't have to train him at all, and maybe by the time I get the book and make up my mind to do it I won't have to, but at this point I feel ready to start researching the whole process.
Gotta go, I hear cooing sounds in the monitor.
