I have a 2 yr old and 11 week old. The baby just recently started sleeping up to 10 hours a night but when I get up to check on her around 3 am somehow her brother knows I am up, so he will get out of bed and come find me. Idk how he manages this, I am very quiet, don't turn on any lights or anything. Sometimes he will go back to sleep as soon as he finds me but the majority of the time he will stay up until after daylight no matter what I do which puts me being up from 3am to approximately 6 or 7am and then if I can manage to go back to sleep, the baby gets up around 8. If I could manage to take a nap it would be fine but I had to stop him from taking naps because he would stay up until 2 or 3am before going to sleep and I just couldn't do that anymore. Now I am getting about as much sleep as I did back then and I just don't have the energy to do this, and I seem to be in a worse mood than normal. Has anyone had this problem before?? If so, any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated!!
