It was like that with her for MONTHS! It was horrible but at least
she didn't cry in the night, she just chilled. She mainly cried from 7-11pm

That's when DS cries his hardest too. I think from being overtired.

My first... PERFECT baby. Dd2? Colic for months. Didnt sleep more than 3 hours til she was 4. Didnt sleep through the night til 6. Screamed the first 3 years non stop. They always say the second one is the worst and they come second because if you had them first you wouldn't have anymore lol



Yes there was guilt because the entire world revolved around HER. Now she is the best child but I went through the "what have I done" phase. I wouldn't wish. A child like that on anyone.



Fund someone to watch the lil one at least once a week and do something special with the oldest. Thats what I had to do. It was our only option.

Until she was FOUR? Oh God. What on Earth did she want in the middle of the night? lol.

She was just awake. I kept asking pedi to fix her lol we completely kid proofed her room. Moved all of the outlets up high and bought a half door for her room. It worked but I still couldnt sleep knowing she was up
