My son is almost 2 and has been in this "sleep regression" for at least 2 months now, and it is driving me crazy. It took a while to get him to where he would put his self to sleep at night, and now its back to square one :( It was not so bad at first, he would just cry for 5-10 minutes and go to sleep and sleep through the night, but now it almost takes 30 minutes to go to sleep and and he cries so loud the whole time. I feel horrible! He even will wake up in the middle of the night screaming and nothing seems to make him better not sleeping with us, not rocking..nothing! We are expecting a baby in October and I just pray that he will be back to his sleep schedule before she gets here! Any tips? What could I do different, will this pass? Should I be worried.. We even put a bible under his pillow, because we were concerned it was night terrors, but that didnt seem to stop the screaming at times.
I hate to hear him scream, but getting up at 430 three days a week for work can just make you want to scream yourself when he cant sleep no matter what you do.
