more no sleeping

Daisy is now a week shy of four months old, and there is still no napping unless someone holds her. I am getting a little frustrated, by which I mean I'm about ready to throw myself in front of a train.

I can't help with the no sleeping, but I can tell you about my sister's plane trip tonight, which involved poop outside the diaper, projectile vomiting, 4-year old tantrums, spilled water, and the 4-year old repeatedly hitting the call button.

I mean, at least you might laugh yourself silly, and feel better.

oh - so sorry. I wish I knew how to help.

@AnnieD: We're often told that it's not useful to compare ourselves to others, but that's a lie. At least I'm quietly going crazy in the comfort of my own home, rather than in public on a plane at 30,000 feet.

My boys both went through this phase and I had to just give in and let them sleep in the swing. With it running. "Bad Mommy" be damned, I got some sleep, and the boys ability to walk in a straight line was in no way impaired.

I like how the instructions that came with the swing say not to let the baby sleep in it. Why do they think I bought it? Unfortunately Daisy won't sleep there either.

You may or may not remember this, but Katie would only sleep--day or night--in my arms for the first six months of her life. Yeah, it sucks. And I wanted to punch people right in the face when they told me she'd outgrow it and we'd both survive. But she did, and we did. Want me to come down there so I can either hold Daisy or let you punch me in the face?

@ Sherise: Come and hold Daisy anytime. It's fun when you don't have to do it all day! And I promise not to punch you in the face. ... Unless you say something snide about my weight gain. Then all bets are off.
