I reckon that I jinxed myself. What a night and day we have had so far. The Bee movie is going for Jordy, I'm sitting here with the laptop on my knee, the babies are FINALLY asleep (we will see how long this lasts) and Tim is in bed trying to sleep.
After bathing Rylie at 7pm last night and giving him his bottle, he was wide awake so I put him in the swing chair for a little while, perhaps too long , who knows, because it took me 2 hours to get him to go to sleep. Screaming off and on since 7pm till 9:30pm is not nice.
All this time Lilly is happily sleeping through the crying and screaming. Then she wakes at 10:30 for feed.
We have noticed that both have wind issues and we are using Infacol and Gripe water, which I think at times works...but then again who knows.
During times like last night it is very hard to doubt yourself and go utterly insane. At one point I was tempted to put both of them in the car and go for a drive to see it that would settle them, but I was frightened that I would fall asleep at the wheel.
I keep on saying to myself "This time will pass, it will get worse before it gets better". Over and over to keep myself from breaking down. They are 3.5 weeks old and I hope that at 3 months things will be better. I have to believe that it will be better.
This time will pass....I hope.
This morning we have been trying to settle them since 8:30, the only way I got Rylie to finally fall asleep was to put him on his tummy, which Tim is really against as he doesn't want them to get used to falling asleep on their tummies as he believes that we can never go anywhere as they will not sleep in the car.
But I reckon if it works them why not....
I'm now waiting for Jordy to go to sleep so that I can crash into bed as well.
