And before anyone gets up in arms, I've done it both ways and still chose this route so I know the benefits et cetera, ad nauseum.
Well, I was going to pop on at 8 o'clock and say how peaceful it was around here. The middle blondies were both so miserable, they practically fell into bed (with not a little guilt on my part). The youngest blondie had been asleep for over an hour.
How things change.
Does anyone have any suggestions what one should do about a child who refuses to sleep without a nipple in his mouth? If I would go up there right now and let him "eat," he would go right to sleep.
Until I put him down.
At which point he would begin to scream again.
I am tired of being a chew toy and a pacifier and I am extraordinarily tired of being the only solution to this child's woes.
So there I was debating whether I should watch the chick flick I rented for myself or just go to bed and try to forget this new years eve (and hopefully recover a bit from this dang respiratory infection), but my question has been answered.
Because I just don't sleep well while being a stand in paci.
