Oh Heavenly Father, Give Me Patience!!

This lil boy is becoming an insomniac and its taking a major toll on the entire family. 1 insomniac in 1250 sq ft=disaster. I am having so much trouble keeping him from waking everyone, I am not getting any sleep, hes crying, saying he's board, etc. He doesnt nap during that day and goes to bed at 8ish so what the heck is wrong with him? I can't take it. I want to peacefully resolve this for him, but a week straight of him waking up at 1am and being done sleeping everynight is realllllly doing me in. I am exhausted. HELP, anyone? How do I apply peaceful parenting to this situation? Such a QT, but so rough to live with sometimes.

Caroline has been waking up all hours of the night too! We have only 1208 sqft so I am feeling your pain. She sleeps on the couch most nights, but is up doing stuff every few hours. Ugh! Do they make crates for children? (Ok, I am so joking)

Have you tried Melatonin? That was recommended to me when my ASD son was having sleep troubles. I think it works for everyone, though, not just children or adults with other problems.

Hey there, ((((hugs))))If you want to give me a call today to talk I can help you see options to navigate through this respectfully and peacefully.

Much Love, Dayna

I'll second the melatonin and suggest a blessing! Good luck and I know you'll figure it out!
