I feel like I am the only one out there that has a child that does not sleep through the night at 20 months. He has twice in his life. He is up 3 times a night at least. He is super sad when he wakes, and just wants me. I have tried the cry it out method, but he gets himself so worked up and so exhausted that he makes himself throw up. The DRs say it is medication time for sleep. I strongly disagree. The side effects are too extreme, and God forbid something horrible happen if we were selfish and did medicate fo sleep. I am a stay at home mama, but I am slowly draining away. I have a 3 month old that sadly sleeps better that my 20 month old.
