Hi everyone, this is more a begging letter than an AIBU, but I am literally desperate and posting for traffic. I have spent hours trawling the internet to find a suitable answer but no joy Here is my issue: I have a 2 year old who is waking every hour through the night and I'm thinking it's due to being cold. He has a duvet but kicks it off due to excessive wriggling. I'm putting him in long sleeve vests, pjs and socks. I also have a 6 month old who is ebf and also waking to feed every hour so I'm hanging here from lack of sleep.
Please throw your wisdom my way and any products/bits you can recommend.
Thanks so much from a sleep deprived desperate mummy
The gro company do sheets that zip onto the duvet so that they stay in place. I’m sure if you google them you might find them. Or you could try a sleeping bag. From memory I think ikea do ones for older babies /toddlers? Good luck. It’s a killer!
Wow - that's tough. Duvet clip things for the 2yo, and co-sleeping with the 6 mo. Are you sure the 2yo not waking up out of habit or to compete for attention with the 6mo? Can you insist that dp does all the 2yo resettles? My 4yo generally stops getting out of bed when she realises she's getting daddy. Any chance of giving the 6mo an early morning bf and then dp taking him downstairs for solids brekkie while you get an extra couple of hours? I remember very nearly losing my shit when I was in your position. I begged him to stay home from work one day to take them so I could get a couple of hours sleep and he refused. He has since admitted he was wrong. So wrong. Good luck. There will be sleep again in the future. Promise.
