Rylan slept through the night (from 7-4) one time then got an ear infection/cold and has been up every two hours for the last 3 weeks. Last night I stayed in the room with him but didnt pick him up. Just patted or rubbed his back. everytime I withdrew my hand he started crying. I walked out of the room (pure frustration I admit it) and he went totally ballistic. after a few minutes I gave up. It had been over an hour since he woke. I picked him up and took him to my bed where he hiccuped for half an hour before he finally went to sleep. I havent had a full nights sleep in over 11 months. I work full time. I cant take anymore. Cry it out is NOT going to work for us. I get upset and frustrated and he gets so wound up that he is difficult to settle even if I DO pick him up. Please help. oh, we have co-slept after his 2 am wake up for a long time. I need to get him out of the bed. Im a light sleeper and he tosses and turns and rolls and flings his arms. I get less sleep if he is in the bed than if he wakes every two hours.
