Last night bedtime got pushed back late because Roland and Matthew went to Costco. So bedtime didn't get started until 8:30 and Matthew didn't fall asleep until 9:45. Fantastic. Now we wait for the first wake-up. It didn't take long. He woke up for the first time at 10:30 and Roland caved and gave him some milk. He woke up again at 11:45 and I refused to give him milk. Cue a massive 10 minute meltdown with Matthew running around drunk between our room and his. I sat in his room on the floor and waited for him to calm down and come back. He eventually did and I gave him a hug until he calmed down and then I offered him some water. He chugged the water and went back to sleep. But then he woke up at 3:30 and Roland put him back to bed. He woke up again at 4:30 and wanted in our bed. At this point we were both exhausted, but I refused to let him in our bed. When it was clear that he was not going to sleep in his own room, I had Roland bring the mat into our room and I told Matthew he could sleep on the floor. We'll have to wean him off this as well, but at least he's not IN our bed. When Roland got up at 5:15, so did Matthew and that's when he ended up back in bed with me for another hour until I was ready to get up. We are both exhausted. We're going to have to get tougher with him. Or maybe we'll have to call that Sleep Doula after all.
