Why is that again?

Somebody remind me why it is that I'm giving up caffeine for a child who still won't sleep?

My caffeine consumption is resting just about as close to nil as I can go and still function, but I can not detect even the slightest increase in sleep for the kiddo. So, not only is he NOT sleeping, I'm running into walls.

I heard that caffeine has a half life of 6 hours. I have an awful feeling that I've pumped this child so full of caffeine, his won't expire for 143 years.

With that in mind, I may as well keep drinking it.

How old is he? Can you slip him a little oatmeal or rice cereal. That always worked for my little ones! Best of luck!

I say if you're not getting sleep anyway - you might as well get the Pepsi!

Jamie, get a bottle of children's Bendryl. Give the baby a half dose, and GET SOME SLEEP!!!! You are going to be a very VERY sick mommy if you don't!! If you have any friend that lives close, ask for some help. You cannot keep running at this pace. ((HUGS))
