This May Hold the Answer to My Son's "Sleep Strike"
I came across this article last night in a desperate attempt to find answers and a solution as to why my son no longer sleeps. This article (below) made a lot of since. I put my son in bed while he was awake. Albeit, I had to stand at his crib and let him fuss a little until he fell asleep, but he slept almost four hours last night (longer than he has been). He woke up, I gave him some Tylonel and then a bottle. He has been teething as well. He slept another 5.5 hours after that. This may take a few nights, but I have tried just about everything one can think of and has done. I am one very tired Mommy, and he is one very cranky baby.
I also believe my son is going through separation anxiety, since I cannot be out of his site, has to either be in my lap, hold my hand, or be directly next to me when playing.
There are three parts to this.
