I'm going to share a little secret, and then you'll have no sympathy for me whatsoever. My kids have been rockstars about sleep transition after travel. With the exception of one who had night terrors for six months, bless her, they've all slept through the night from the get-go. Until now.
We've only been home three days so I realize I need to give it time, but it's getting worse. We landed in bed at 3:30 am Friday and slept till noon, no problem! All of us. Friday night, little dude woke up at midnight, guzzled a bottle, and tossed and turned till 2. That's doable.
Saturday night, he woke up at 2, downed a bottle and tossed and turned till 5. Last night he woke up at midnight and tossed and turned till 4:55. Not cool. My alarm rings at 5.
Around these parts when the alarms rings, we hit the ground with both feet and all hands on deck. I don't know how that will play out today.
I'm desperate for suggestions to help Mr. Cool sleep! And I'm not beyond medication, people. When he doesn't sleep, I don't sleep. He goes to his crib until he wakes for a bottle, and then we're co-sleeping. But my littlest rockstar is like the Energizer bunny...on steroids. He can be perfectly still for all of 2.2 nanoseconds, and then he's rolling around, kicking his legs and reaching to hold my hand. He has to have my hand over his. Sweet, huh? It really is. But he is so tired. He's really awesome about not sitting up and playing. I can tell he's frustrated though.
So, what would you do? And please don't say skip the nap because I've been letting him nap less than an hour. And we've been staying up till between 9 and 10, which is so past my bedtime!
We all thank you for your words of wisdom :)
