I feel like I'm at the end of my tether with bedtimes. It goes something like this, dinner, bath, stories. Depending on how tired ds (1.5) is ill put him to sleep first by bf to sleep and then lay with the other two (6 and 4) until they fall asleep or lay with them all in my bed if ds is not exhausted. The thing is they keep wanting more stories, milk, drink, toilet. Jumping up and down, sa will wake up and need resettling the other two become hyper and won't aettle. The house is a complete bomb site in the evening as they don't tidy and week the place. I start reading stories around 7 and often don't start tidying until 9 or 10. Then I'm up minimum 4 times a night with ds up to 15-20 times no joke! The others wake 2-3 times a week once in the night. I've lost patience, and want them to go to sleep like other people's children and have some sort of evening.
I won't do any form of cc or cio with my youngest as I really don't agree with it used on babies.
