It’s true. It’s the worst one thus far. This toddler of mine is stubborn, full of relentless will, and out of nowhere started screaming tearfully through her nap time.
A week has passed by and we’ve developed a system that works 50% of the time. We’ll take it.
She wakes up, bawling with unprecedented might, four times during the night.
They say sleep regressions can last anywhere from 2-6 weeks.
“They” say it so casually in their baby sleep websites and articles.
“They” say, “this too shall pass”.
I say, “I’d like to show you where to stick your #!@; six weeks prediction”.
Mothers, fathers, nannies, daycare providers… I raise my coffee cup to you. I’m only a week in. I’m not sure we’ll survive another day of this sleep hell… But together, we will certainly try.
If I don’t come out of this alive, or if I emerge without my sanity…
It’s been real.
A hopeful sleep regression survivor
