I can't get Joey to sleep through the night. And I'm done trying. I'm more tired now after "sleep training" for 5 days than I was before. He cries and cries and cries in the night and I lay awake for hours. Not just during the crying... I lay awake after it wondering if I did the right thing?; is he really asleep?; should I sneak in to check on him?; when will he wake up again?; is he hungry?; did he poop?; is he cold?; etc. etc. etc. And last night, a new question came to my mind... how on earth is my husband capable of sleeping through all that racket? So I quit. I thought we were making progress and getting into a routine of him crying it out at the 4 hour mark, getting up to eat 7-8 hours after he goes to bed and then last night the little bugger threw a wrench into the entire program by not eating at all before he went to bed sooooooo tired, and waking up starving at 12:30am. I'm soooooooooo done. Don't ask me what I'm going to do now because I have no bloody idea, but it won't be cry it out. I feel like crying it out. I just might. So I'll probably have the 2 year old that is still waking in the middle of the night. Whatever. That's fine.
