My Turn




It's almost 3:30 in the morning and Macy is no where ready for bed. This has been our story since Christmas. She'll stay up until 4 or 5 and then be ready to call it a night, I mean day. Tuesday, I decided to dedicate my day to keeping her awake. I tried everything -tickling, rubbing a wet (but nicely warmed) washcloth on her face, singing (which my singing would wake up anyone so they could tell me to stop), and opening the blinds so the sunshine could remind her that it is time to be up! Nothing phased her except for her bath. But I can't keep her in the bath all day - she would turn into a raisin! So please share your wisdom with me! Tony and I are getting too old to pull all-nighters!

oh i'm so sorry, Spencer did this too until he was about 4 months old. I remember getting only 1 to 2 hours of sleep a night and it was so hard, I would let him nap a little during the day but wake him up every few hours and make him stay awake as long as possible. You sound like you're doing all that you can do to keep her awake. Hopefully she'll get her night & day turned around soon. P.S. Nick at Nite has some good shows on in the middle of the night, that's what I used to turn on if i had trouble keeping my eyes open.
