I love these inventive photos Adele Enersen took of her sleeping daughter, Mila. Unfortunately, we'll never be able to do the same thing for baby R, because he never sleeps.
Sleep training is not going well. R wakes every two hours, often wailing from 2-4 a.m no matter what I do. I am utterly spent. At one point last week, we bought a pack of earplugs and J and I started trading nights up with the baby, but after several turns with no discernible improvement, J lost all patience and it's back to being my responsibility.
The unrelenting fatigue leaves me snappish with my husband and children, sluggish and woefully under-conditioned when it comes to running, and pathetically vulnerable to every single cold and flu virus I encounter.
I'm not sure what else to do, except take more naps.
