Momma's Little Girl / Sleepless Nights

My little girl is such a mommas girl. It's the cutest thing.... well sometimes, and sometimes it's pretty stressful. For the past week I've been waking up to Lily screaming her head off. Last night in an attempt to let me catch up on my sleep, Jason decided to get her. She screamed even louder from the minute he picked her up. I layed in bed thinking "I'll give it a few more minutes" That's when she starts screaming mama continuously. Then there was a loud "I unt my mama" (translation... I WANT MY MAMA!) At that point I figured if I didn't haul my sleep deprived butt outta the bed No one was gonna get any sleep. Finally after attempt after attempt to get her asleep and back in her bed I realized I had to put her in the bed with me.

Don't get me wrong I have nothing against co sleeping, but I'm what I like to call a violent sleeper, and i think my daughter got that from me too. Let's just say nobody got any sleep last night. I spent the night with a little girl rolling all over my bed and pulling my hair out (she likes to play with my hair to fall asleep but if she has it in her hand after she's asleep she yanks it)

I don't know what I'm gonna do. I don't know if she's scared or what. After all this time I really don't wanna start putting her in the bed with me because nobody really gets any sleep. Not to mention the time I had to take her to the ER when she rolled out, landed on her head and threw up all over.

I know it could be the other way around and she scream when "I" pick her up like she does to J (and I can see it hurts his feelings) but I NEED some sleep!

Anybody got any advice? Help!



  1. Hey!! Thanks for following me =)

  2. Thanks for visitng Phoenix's blog! Your little girl is beautiful! Can't wait to read more on your journey!

  3. I had the same thing happen with Ava a few months ago! She did it for seriously two weeks or so. I didn't know what to do! She would just wake up constantly...and wanted me. She eventually just stopped doing that one night. I think that they just go through spurts sometimes and are just developing new feelings/growing physically/etc. Good luck! Hpoefully now it's better.
