This is getting old

I haven't been writing about my nighttime adventures in hopes that they will get better but I can't see that happening any time soon so here we go.

A typical night:

7pm-Nash goes down
7:30pm-9pm-Kai goes down
9:30pm-Nash wakes up (we try to soothe with nursing, pacifier, rocking)
11pm-Nash wakes up (repeat soothing,lasts anywhere from 5-20 minutes)
1am-Nash wakes up " "
2am-Nash wakes up " "
3:30am-Nash wakes up " "
5:30am-Nash wakes up " "
6:30am-Kai wakes up
7am-Nash up for good

How long is this going to go on??? He is on his 4th antibiotic and has an appointment with the ENT but that won't be happening for a week or two. I'm exhausted and always sick. So are the boys. I have no patience for Kai because I'm so tired and unfortunetly it's taken out on him. So I would say this is just a down time in my parenting and I'm trying my best to function and be there for my boys. So if you are up in the middle of the night for whatever reason, remember me :)

Awwww - I'm so sorry. I would push to get him into the NT sooner. If he's in pain and it's not getting better, they shouldn't make him wait that long.

I'm sorry about Nash - and you! I remember when Joshua was 7 - 9 months old and waking up 5 or 6 times a night. At least Nash has good reason though not that it makes it any easier!

Maybe now that you published what's happening at night you have more people praying for you and it will end soon!

Remember that if you need a break during the day, there is absolutely no shame in putting them in front of Elmo while you regain your sanity! :-)
That said- I'm so sorry for what you and the boys are going through. Hopefully this is a hort season!
