Jeez Rube, how old are you? Your oldest daughter is already too old for most of styleforum to date.

I'm very frustrated with our two and three-quarters year old and her sleep patterns lately. Ugh.

Kid was a perfect sleeper forever. Slept a 6-hour stretch just a couple of days after we got home from the hospital. Slept through the night reliably at 12 weeks. Has been a dream to put down ever since; no problems. Never tried to climb out of her crib, nothing.

We screwed it all up. We moved and had a room in mind for her, but it was sort of far from our room. There's a closer room, but we'd wanted to use it as a nursery for kid #2 if that happened. And with the move we didn't want to put her too far away. Also, we sort of wanted to move her out of her crib and into a bed - the crib had never been a problem but we thought she might like a "big girl bed" and she was going on 3 nearly, after all.

We moved and decided to put her in the closer room to get acclimated to the new house. Converted the crib to a toddler bed as the first step in her transition to a normal bed - we decided we'd just put her in a queen since we had one and it would suit her for years and years to come. All was well; she slept soundly through the first week.

Things were going so great we decided to move her into the other room and into the queen.

TRAIN WRECK.

Gave up on that after a week, moved her back into the toddler bed in the closer room.

STILL A TRAIN WRECK.

It's been a month since we tried moving her back and still every night putting her down is a 2+ hour affair with screaming and hysterics and she's even also waking up in the middle of the night routinely. We are fucked. ugh.

I feel your pain, D. In fact, I have been feeling it since we brought our son home from the hospital nearly 23 months ago.

I plan to sleep when I am dead ..... though that may be overly optimistic.

sorry to hear that, I am past that now, luckily, and I don't even remember it well.....

Depends ...

If Stitches is buried next to you , he will not stop talking to you in the other world and stop you from resting.

+1 on the sleep problems. My twins were pretty good sleepers for the first year but have recently started a pattern where one wakes up, starts crying, which wakes up the other one. One goes to my wife for milk and the other one just shrieks at me...useless boob.

Dude, you have had it so easy. 16 months, and I can recall one night where R has slept from 8 to 6. Just this morning she was up at 2, hungry and upset.
